Incident report

After a miserable, rainy morning the skies brightened up and it turned into a lovely afternoon in the Peak District.

Two walkers and their dogs were enjoying an afternoon stroll in Monk’s Dale when one of them slipped as they were descending a tricky, rock step resulting in a very painful leg injury.

After rendezvousing at Miller’s Dale car park, team members headed back up the road to the team vehicles and walked down into the steep-sided limestone dale carrying the rescue equipment to the casualty’s location.

Following an initial assessment, the casualty was covered by a warm, fleecy casualty bag as they were now feeling cold, then pain relief was provided and a box splint applied to the leg.

The casualty was placed onto the mountain rescue stretcher and carried up the steep, narrow, tree lined path to the top of the dale and the grassy slope to the East Midlands Ambulance at the road head.

The team would like to send its best wishes to the casualty for a speedy recovery.
