Boulder Valley 16:19hrs 18th October (40/2012)
13 personnel were deployed to help a young female who had hurt her back.
She was close to the Pudding Stone in this rough area which is full of boulders. The casualty slipped at the end of a long day. Fortunately the Air Ambulance was able to attend, landing precariously on a flat piece of land close to the main track. She was put onto a spinal board and flown to Furness General hospital.
The call out took 1 1/2hrs and we were able to drive all the way to the casualty…an unusual but welcome change.
