A 17 year old in a Duke of Edinburgh group was walking a section of the Cumbria Way above Rosthwaite when he slipped and banged his head. Others in the group became concerned and called for help after the lad started stumbling and feeling dizzy. Two passing leaders from another DofE group helped the casualty down to a Keswick team vehicle where an assessment was made by a team medic. An ambulance transferred him to hospital for further checks.
