Incident Details: North West Ambulance Service requested assistance from the Team to locate and retrieve a 67 year old lady, who had slipped and suffered an ankle injury near Ashness Bridge. The ambulance was unable to negotiate the bridge, so a Team Land Rover and a Team Sprinter attended. It then transpired that the 68 year old husband of the lady, in going to get assistance, had fallen from a stile, and knocked himself out. The Team managed to recover both casualties to the roadside, and the ambulance crews then took over treatment and onward transport to Keswick hospital.
