Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, NWAS

A 50 year old woman slipped on a wet and greasy rocky path that descends through the woods on the north side of King’s How. She had landed on her back and banged the back of her head. As she was unable to move her partner called for help. Two team vehicles were dispatched and made their way up to the casualty, who although well kitted out with extra clothing, was still cold due to the wait in heavy rain. After being assessed and treated by the team medics she was packaged with heat blankets and carefully stretchered down the awkward slippy path to a waiting ambulance.
