Grizedale Forest

14:17 (Grid SD 335 953)

The team was contacted by the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) to an incident in Grizedale Forest.

A lady had fallen on one of the forest tracks and had sustained a possible injury to her leg and pelvis.

Two vehicles left the base and made their way to Grizedale Forest. The team were met by one of the forest workers who was able to direct us to the scene of the incident.

The lady was treated for her injuries and was placed in a vacuum mattress to hold her body rigid while she was being stretchered out of the forest.

Once back at the visitors centre we were met by Paramedics from NWAS and the lady was taken to Barrow in Furness for further treatment.

This call out involved 10 team members and lasted just under two hours.
