It was a mild, sunny and dry afternoon.

The team was alerted to a gentleman who had been descending off the fell from Goats Hawse along the main track to Goats water. He was with a large Rambling party when he had slipped, resulting in a fractured fibula.

When the team arrived he had already been given pain relief by one of the walking group. We were able to splint the leg and stretcher him to the waiting North West Air Ambulance which had landed below Cove Quarry. He was airlifted to Lancaster Royal Infirmary.
