Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, GNAAS

A 22 year old female fell runner taking part in a multi day event went over on her ankle near the top of Rigg Beck, between Ard Crags and Scar Crags. Event support including a medic attended and requested Mountain Rescue assistance for the casualty’s evacuation. Her condition was deemed serious enough to call the air ambulance which was fortunately available. On arrival the team assisted with medical care before loading the casualty onto a stretcher for a short carry up to the helicopter which was able to land on the col above. Many thanks to the Great North Air Ambulance Service for saving us from what would have been a long and difficult stretcher carry.
