Helvellyn (56)

Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT

A couple were descending Helvellyn when one tripped and turned her ankle. Although she was determined to continue down the path, with so far still to go and being unable to bear any weight, her partner called 999 for mountain rescue help. The team quickly made their way up to the casualty and assessed her as having a badly sprained ankle.  After it was splinted she was stretchered down to her own car so that she could continue to Carlisle Infirmary for further treatment.
