Incident report

Fifteen members of the Joint Edale and Buxton Team Snatch Squad responded when called to assist East Midlands Ambulance Service already on scene at an incident just a 100 metres from Speedwell Cavern.

A lady, from Macclesfield supervising  a school party, had slipped in the damp conditions and sustained a suspected fracture to the ankle.  First aid treatment was by E.M.A.S. staff before the casualty was placed on a rescue stretcher for the short but steep decent to the ambulance.   She was then taken to a Macclesfield hospital for further treatment.
