Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, NWAS
On a damp and drizzly evening a group of four young Duke of Edinburgh Award males were descending Hazel Bank towards Rosthwaite in Borrowdale. One of the group, a 13 year old, slipped and put his arm out to break his fall resulting in an impressively fractured lower arm. Keswick team members arrived on scene, a team doctor gave strong analgesia before reducing (realigning) and splinting the arm. The unlucky young expeditioner was then stretchered down to an awaiting ambulance in the valley.
