Hole Rake

15:42 (Grid SD 296 995)

As we were dealing with the first incident, we were also asked by NWAS to help a 9 year old boy with a head injury at Hole Rake, a path between Tilberthwaite and Coppermines Valley, over the Yewdale Fells. Our second and third Land Rovers deployed directly to this incident, and our first one joined them on its return from the Cockley Beck incident. The boy, who was with a large group of friends and adults, had cuts on his head and was feeling a bit groggy, but fortunately nothing more serious. He was fully assessed, given oxygen, bandaged and stretchered off the fell to a waiting land ambulance at Tilberthwaite.

This callout involved 17 team members and lasted 2hrs 20mins.
