Stockley Bridge, Seathwaite (43)

Callout Time: 11:43 am
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT

A couple were out for a walk when one slipped and injured her ankle at Stockley Bridge. A valiant effort was made to continue but the pain was too much. A pair of passing walkers made their way to nearby Seathwaite Farm to raise the alarm as there is no mobile signal in this part of Borrowdale. They returned up the valley and waited with the casualty and her husband for the arrival of the Keswick team. After splinting the ankle the woman was stretchered to their car at Seathwaite Farm. They then made their own way to hospital for further checks.

Many thanks to kind couple who helped on the rescue.
