Incident report

On Thursday Buxton Team was called to Edale following reports of an injured walker on Kinder Scout.

Further enquires revealed a 22 year old male walker from the Doncaster area had twisted his knee whilst crossing the Kinder Plateau with friends in the Crowden Head area. Team personnel were deployed but due to distance we requested an air ambulance to assist. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance attended and evacuated the walker to Edale Village, where he was met by team members.

He refused hospital treatment and preferred to make his own way home. He was however, advised to seek medical assistance.
