Brock Barrow

Incident 17 of 2020:-
05/08/2020, 16:11, Brock Barrow, SD30028977
Heavy rain and strong winds meant few walkers on the high fells, but even the lower fells were very slippery. Cumbria Police called us about a woman who had slipped and sustained a serious leg injury on Brock Barrow at the south-east end of Coniston Water. A full team callout was initiated and all three of our Land Rovers were despatched. The lady’s injury was assessed, pain relief given, the leg splinted, and then she was carried on our stretcher down to the waiting land ambulance at High Nibthwaite. She was then transferred to Furness General hospital.
The incident took 2 hrs 20 minutes and involved 13 volunteer members.
