Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, NWAS

Soon after returning from the Seatoller incident (no. 45) we were called out again for a woman who heard a snapping noise in her ankle whilst descending Latrigg on the Spooney Green Lane path. Unable to continue they called for help. Uncertain at first of her position two vehicles were sent out, one to the main Gale Road car park behind Latrigg, and the other to the bottom of Spooney Green Lane. With this pincer movement she was soon located. The ankle was assessed, pain relief provided, bandaged and splinted. She was then stretchered down the path where an ambulance transported her to hospital at Carlisle.
