Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team called to assist East Midlands Ambulance Service following the report of a casualty on the footpath leading down into Monsal Dale.

A lady from Nottinghamshire had fallen on the path and sustained a serious leg injury.  Paramedics from East Midlands Ambulance Service were first on scene and treated the lady and administered pain relief.  Team members, assisted by police officers, then loaded the casualty onto a rescue stretcher for a short but steep carry back to Monsal Head where the ambulance was waiting to transfer her to a Chesterfield hospital.
