Watendlath (54)

Callout Date: 25/06/2022
Callout Time: 3:42 pm
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT

A man tripped and fell whilst walking on the rocky path from Watendlath to Rosthwaite. His walking partner and passers-by came to his aid but found him slightly confused, unsteady and complaining of chest pains. They rightly decided to call for Mountain Rescue who were able to drive close to their location.  The team assessed the man and, while he was much improved, determined that due to his symptoms, chest pain and age, further assessment was required. An air ambulance (Helimed 58) had became available and arrived on scene while the team assisted the man in walking down. With any underlying medical issues ruled out by the air ambulance team the man was taken by land ambulance to the Cumberland Infirmary for treatment of a suspected cracked sternum.
