Incident report

As team members were leaving the previous incident at Cats Tor for the journey back to base a second call out was initiated in a different part of our operational area.

This time the incident was south of Buxton in the scenic area of Kirk Dale, to the west of Ashford in the Water. The casualty had been descending a path to the road, having enjoyed a walk with a group, when a slip resulted in another lower leg injury.

Paramedics from East Midlands Ambulance Service were soon in attendance and called on our services to help with the stretcher evacuation. The casualty was sledged down the slope using a safety back rope and then carried the short distance to the waiting ambulance.

We hope both of today’s casualties recover quickly and are able to enjoy the skies or footpaths of the Peak District National Park.
