Dow Crag

Incident 22 of 2022:-
10/07/22, 16.18, Dow Crag, SD263977
Cumbria Police (CUMPOL) called us about a climber with a head injury at Dow Crag. We initially despatched two Land Rovers, going as far as is drivable, and then walking. HM Coastguard helicopter Rescue 936 was already overhead Dow Crag and winched the casualty on-board. Tragically, he had not survived his fall, and we send our sincere condolences to his family and friends. A Helimed was also in attendance. There was still a person cragfast, who was helped to Easy Terrace by climbers already there, and we met him at the top of the climbers’ descent and escorted him down.
