The team was asked to go to the assistance of a lady who had injured her ankle whilst walking along the track from Goat’s Hawse.
She slipped on gravel and sustained a possible fracture. Two members of the team were already on the Coniston Fells so they were able to make their way to the casualty prior to the arrival of the rest of the team. Fortunately the North West Air Ambulance was able to attend and they arrived first, landing on the flat area on the Hawse. The paramedics treated the lady whilst the team prepared the stretcher. We carried her up to the helicopter which then airlifted her to Furness General Hospital.
On this incident 14 members were deployed and the call out took 3 hours.
