Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, GNAAS, Coast Guard R199

On her 70th birthday a woman took a nasty tumble near Skew Gill on the Corridor Route seriously injuring her leg and hip. GNAAS¬†Helimed 58 lifted whilst the team were gathering at base. Unfortunately Helimed were unable to land close to the casualty so put down near the Sty Head stretcher box. The air ambulance doctor was then able to access the casualty, assess her injuries and give some pain relief. Considering the casualty’s location and possible injuries a Coast Guard helicopter was requested. Meantime¬†Keswick team members approached on foot from Seathwaite. Coast Guard R199 deployed from Prestwick and arrived on scene around the same time as team members. The casualty was then winched from the gully and flown to RVI Newcastle for treatment. We wish the casualty a belated happy birthday and a swift recovery.

15 team members – 4 hours 3 minutes
