Incident report

Ther second call out of the day came in at just past 4.00 pm, as team members were dealing with incident 63.

A request came from East Midlands Ambulance Service for an injured walker on Jacobs Ladder. The casualty was reported to have lost consciousness. Due to the seriousness of the incident, and the fact that team members were still dealing with incident 63, Kinder Mountain Rescue Team, Edale Mountain Rescue Team and the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance were also requested to help.

The air ambulance was able to land at the top of Jacobs Ladder, and its crew walked down to the casualty, as team members made their way up from the bottom. Luckily the casualty had regained consciousness and was able to make their way to a waiting vehicle which drove them to the road head and waiting ambulance.
