Callout Date: 14/09/2022
Callout Time: 7:11 pm
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, Coast Guard Helicopter
Whilst attempting an off-road Coast to Coast a mountain biker fell from his bike and dislocated his shoulder near Angle Tarn below Esk Hause. His companion had to leave the scene to get a phone signal to raise the alarm. The team made its way onto the hill via Grains Gill but due to the remote location, the potential for a long wait for the team’s arrival and a long carry off support was requested from a Coastguard helicopter. By the time the Team had reached the top of Ruddy Gill Rescue Helicopter 199 had attended the scene, picked up the casualty and taken him and his bike to Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle. Many thanks to Rescue 199 for their help. As the casualty and his companion were intending to bivi out anyway the companion remained on the hill overnight intending to make his own way down in the morning.
