Today the team was called out to the aid of a female walker.
She had been walking on the track between Goatswater and Walna Scar when a strong gust of wind blew her over. She sustained an injury to her ribs and was in a lot of pain. Fortunately the Air Ambulance was able to attend and take her to Furness General.
The team took the rest of the walking party back to the Rescue Base.
The call out took under 1 1/2 hours due to the locality and helicopter evacuation. This was good because we seem to be spending a lot of time on call outs these last couple of months and have well exceeded last year’s turn out figure.
