Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, NWAS
A 20 year woman was descending Carl Side (under Skiddaw) towards Dodd when she slipped on an icy path which resulted in a bad ankle injury. The casualty’s party dialled 999 and requested MR assistance. Fortunately Keswick Team vehicles were able to access the forest roads up Dodd and it was only a short walk to the woman. After providing pain relief the ankle was reduced and she was stretchered down a narrow and awkward path to the team vehicles. She was then transported to an ambulance waiting at the car park at the bottom of Dodd.
