An 87 year old lady had a bit of a slip on a steep wet path whilst walking in Johnny’s Wood near Borrowdale Youth Hostel. A passing couple helped her descend a short way but her legs were too wobbly to continue. One of the couple made his way to the hostel from where he was able to call 999 and ask for Mountain Rescue help. One team member who was in the area went direct to the casualty and was joined not long after by other team members who were returning from the first callout of the day (no.65). After an assessment the lady was able to walk assisted the few hundred metres to one of the team vehicles which then took her to meet a land ambulance back at headquarters for further assessment.
