Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team called to a camp site to assist East Midlands Ambulance Service dealing with a casualty with a suspected fractured ankle. 

The casualty, a 19 year old girl from Bredbury, Stockport, had been camping with friends in woodland behind the main camp site when the accident occurred.  It is thought the accident happened around 02.30 am but emergency services were not alerted until  09.00. 

The difficult location of the casualty made for a short but strenuous stretcher carry to a waiting ambulance.
