Church Beck 15th August 16:13hrs (26/2012)
An organised group of teenagers were enjoying themsleves scambling along Church Beck. This is a popular pastime and the waterfalls from below Miners Bridge make it more so if there has been heavy rain.
On this occasion, the team was called to the aid of a female teenager who had simply slipped on the wet rock. She sustained a possible fracture or sprain to her left ankle. Her leg was splinted and she was stretchered to our landrover ambulance.
It was a short ride to the rescue base where she was able to swop her very wet clothes for dry ones. She was then taken to Furness General Hospital.
This was a relatively short call out due to its location and 10 team members attended. We were glad it was a short one because the heavens opened on us all that afternoon.
