Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, NWAS
A 27 year old woman taking part in a mountain marathon event slipped on wet rock descending Raise Beck from Grizedale Tarn. Reports initially suggested she had an ankle injury but was mobile and might just need walking off. A vehicle with 4 team members headed up to Dunmail raise and walked up to the casualty followed shortly after by 4 event marshals. It was quickly obvious that she was unable to walk and was splinted and given pain relief before being put on the stretcher. It was decided that the direct path down to Dunmail raise was too rocky and slippery so we crossed the beck and sledged the stretcher down through the grassy terrain of Willie Wife Moor. She was transferred to the ambulance at Dunmail raise for transport to hospital.
