Seathwaite (31)

Callout Date: 30/04/2022
Callout Time: 2:54 pm
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, NWAS, RAF Leeming Mtn Rescue

Whilst loading the casualty from incident no. 30 into the helicopter the second callout of the day came through. A 52 year old female had tripped on the path between Seathwaite and Stockley Bridge breaking her ankle. Team numbers were short so a hasty party was selected from those present who then ran down Rigg Beck to drive directly around to Seathwaite. On arrival at the scene a team doctor along with another team member were already present. Analgesia was given and the ankle splinted before loading the casualty onto a stretcher for a carry to an ambulance. Just as we had the casualty on the stretcher reinforcements arrived in the form of RAF Valley Mountain Rescue, who are training locally – perfect timing to help with the stretcher carry, many thanks to them for their help.

10 team members – 2 hours 20 minutes
