Derwent Island (67)

Callout Date: 31/07/2018

A family with a 3 month old child were visiting Derwent House on Derwent Island. The baby had fallen from bed and a potential head injury was reported. As there was no available boat service to the island the ambulance service requested help from Keswick MRT who quickly deployed an inflatable craft and transported a paramedic to the island. A back up boat was also prepared at Derwentwater Marina. A preliminary examination showed no apparent injury but it was agreed that further checks be carried out at Carlisle hospital. The baby, who seemed oblivious to the fuss, together with a family member were transferred to shore and then driven by ambulance to Carlisle.
