A 55 year old female fell whilst climbing over a fence by the river Derwent a mile north of Rosthwaite. She had suspected head, shoulder and neck injuries so because of the possible seriousness of her injuries an air ambulance was allocated. Two vehicles of team members were quickly away and treated her with strong analgesia. A land ambulance was available and the air ambulance was stood down and the lady was stretchered to the ambulance at a pull in on the Borrowdale road opposite Colywife Dub.
