Goat’s Water

Incident 18 of 2023:-
08/04/23, 20.47, Goat’s Water, SD267973
Our second callout of the day came after dark, when Cumbria Police asked us to assist a female who had fallen at Goat’s Crag, just south of Goat’s Water, and could not walk further because of an ankle injury. We despatched three Land Rovers as far up the Walna Scar track as we could drive, and then walked the rest of the way to the casualty. She was assessed, the ankle splinted and then she was stretchered back to our vehicles. The lady then returned to her accommodation with her party, intending to go to hospital in the morning if she felt it necessary.
13 volunteer members attended for 3 hours and 30 minutes.
