A 75 year old female took a tumble whilst descending the rocky section below the summit of Castlehead bashing her head on landing. Police and ambulance attended initially but because of the location they asked for Mountain Rescue assistance for the extraction. A full team Landrover was sent from base, just a few hundred metres away, with other team members arriving by various means to climb Castlehead, the small hill and viewpoint just outside Keswick. The casualty was packaged and stretchered down to the ambulance waiting below for onward transfer to Whitehaven Hospital for further investigation.
14 team members – 1 hour
