Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, NWAS
A woman fell near the summit of Castle Crag in Borrowdale, landing on her hip and banging her head. She had back and leg pain and couldn’t continue. She was fortunate to be with her husband (trauma medic) and daughter (nurse). In addition passing walkers kindly provided a group shelter and other covers to keep her warm while awaiting the arrival of the Keswick Team. After an assessment by team medics and some pain relief the woman was packaged and stretchered down to Rosthwaite to an ambulance which transferred her to Carlisle hospital for further checks.
