Incident report

A Snatch Squad call for Edale and Buxton Teams in response to a request from the ambulance service.

A sixty year old German visitor staying in Sheffield was reported to have slipped whilst walking in Padley Gorge and sustained a serious ankle injury.  The teams rendezvoused at Grindleford Station as an air-ambulance was already making its approach.   Team members were able to assist the paramedics and then carried the casualty a short distance to where the aircraft had been able to land.  The lady was then flown to a Chesterfield Hospital.
