Incident report

Christmas morning was interrupted for both Edale Mountain Rescue and Buxton teams when a call for help was received.

A lady from Warrington was enjoying a Christmas morning walk when she slipped and sustained a lower leg injury. After initial treatment, the lady was carried on a team stretcher to an awaiting East Midlands Ambulance Service and onward to hospital.

Team members headed home just in time for their Christmas lunch.  Fortunately for the team members, they were not called out again on the 25th.

We must thanks members of the public for the support we received at the site and afterwards on social media. We really do value all the kind words and donations that we receive.
