The weather was light rain and cloudy, but fairly mild.
The North West Ambulance Service requested our assistance with the evacuation of a female walker. She had been walking along the shore with her dog and slipped due to the wet, greasy conditions underfoot.
Two land rovers were deployed and since the casualty was about 100 meters from the main path, our blue lights and sirens helped with locating her. She had sustained a possible fracture to her ankle and the paramedics administered pain relief. The lady was stretchered up the embankment to the ambulance for her onward journey to Furness General Hospital. Her dog was taken back to the holiday home by team members, to be joined later by a member of the family.
16 Team personnel attended this call out which took just over 2 hours.
