Incident report

A walker out enjoying the Three Shires Head tripped whilst crossing the bridge. As a result, the casualty suffered a head injury, which resulted in reduced consciousness.

A silver The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award group, witnessed the accident and raised the alarm by climbing out of the valley to obtain a phone signal.

The group’s supervisor is a member of Buxton Mountain Rescue and, after making sure the team was called out, made his way to the casualty site to commence medical care.

Team members and response vehicles made their way to the incident site, and with the permission of a local farmer, were able to park on a field close to Three Shires Head.

When team members arrived on-site to support our team member, the casualty was placed onto the team’s stretcher and made their way to the A54 to await the ambulance.

We would all like to wish the walker a speedy recovery and thank the farmer for allowing the team to park on the field.
