Incident report

Another tea time call out to assist a family group who had been exploring Kinder’s southern edges while dodging the heavy rain showers in the area earlier on in the day.

As they were making their way down Grindsbrook, one of them injured their leg and was unable to continue the walk down. One of the group rang Derbyshire Constabulary, who called the team out. Two sections were formed to search the area and quickly located the group. The casualty was assessed at the scene and placed in a casualty bag, to keep them warm and onto the stretcher for the carry off back down to Edale.

After being reunited with their car they were able to make their own arrangements to access further treatment. Team members then returned to base to clean the muddy kit and clean it in line with our current Covid-19 protocols, ready for the next callout.
