Falcon Crag (81)
Callout Time: 1:26 pm
Agencies Involved: keswick MRT
Two for the price of one! A couple were descending the footpath from Walla Crag to Ashness above Falcon Crag when the female slipped on the loose gravel breaking her ankle. The team approached from Ashness and were quickly with the casualty. Pain relief was given and the ankle splinted before stretchering her down to the car park at Ashness Bridge. Whilst this rescue was underway the team were made aware of another ankle injury very close to the first. A team doctor examined the second casualty before they were walked off assisted by a team member. Both casualties were transported separately back to Keswick so as not to be a burden on the ambulance service.
