Cumbria Police alerted us to a 67 year old with a serious leg injury above Beck Wythop on the side of Bassenthwaite Lake. The woman had been walking her dog and slipped and fell awkwardly a few miles from where she had started. Fortunately phone find was able to pinpoint the casualty location amongst the maze of forest tracks. Two vehicles were dispatched to locate the casualty with GNAAS air ambulance lifting due to the apparent serious nature of the injury. The casualty was located and assessed whilst GNAAS was landing in a nearby field. As the injury was not as serious as initially indicated GNAAS were stood down. The casualty was given pain relief and her leg splinted before stretchering her down to the team vehicle. She was then taken down to Beck Wythop where she was collected by a family member for transportation to hospital.
