Incident report

A walker had fallen at the top of Grindsbrook, near Foxholes, resulting in a painful injury to the ankle. Unable to descend, the walking party called for help. Eight team members were tasked to attend from Chatsworth Country Fair along with other team members. From where the casualty was located, a stretcher carry required a large number of team members to attend, therefore due to our commitments at Chatsworth, Edale Mountain Rescue Team was requested to assist. Unfortunately, Edale team were also experiencing a busy weekend, but thankfully a couple of team members were able to assist.

We had just enough members to safely carry the casualty to Edale descending through an extremely hot Grindsbrook.
