Causey Pike (8)
Callout Date: 31/01/2023
Callout Time: 11:51 am
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, GNAAS
At almost the summit of Causey Pike a woman suffered a probable lower leg fracture. A strong gust of wind caused her to be blown sideways but her trekking pole, got in the way of a stabilising leg movement and caused her to trip over it. The resulting injury was very painful. Keswick MRT deployed and shortly after Helimed 58 launched but could not land due to the strong wind. On arrival at the summit Keswick team provided strong pain relief, splinted and packaged her on a stretcher. She was then sledged and carried down the side of Causey Pike to an ambulance at Uzzicar.
