Incident report

While climbing a route on Froggatt Edge a climber fell, sustaining injuries which required help from the emergency services. East Midlands Ambulance Service and the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance arrived on scene to provide initial medical care, and then requested Edale Mountain Rescue Team to assist with the evacuation of the casualty to the roadside. As is normal for a mid-week callout, a request was made to Buxton Mountain Rescue Team to provide further numbers.

Before team members arrived at the scene, the Air Ambulance crew had been able to help the climber to the top of the crag for evacuation to the road in an Edale team vehicle. At this point the climber was handed into the care of EMAS and Buxton team members were able to return to base ready for the next callout.

We hope the climber has a quick recovery and will be back soon on the gritstones of the Peak District National Park#helimed53The Air Ambulance Service
