High Wray, Lake Windermere 7th Sept 2014 14:37hrs 30/2014
The weather was sunny and warm with intermittent cloud.
NWAS (North West Ambulance Service) requested our assistance again, this time with the evacuation of a lady near the shore of Lake Windermere. She had slipped on sloping grassand badly fractured her ankle.
Whilst one land rover made its way to the scene, a team member who had been in the area, was able to locate the casualty and offer reassurance. We arrived at the same time as the Ambulance which meant the Paramedics were able to treat the lady whilst the stretcher was being prepared. She was given pain relief before her ankle was manipulated back into position so that it could be splinted.Once on the stretcher the casualty was driven to the North West Air Ambulance which had landed near Wray Castle, for her onward journey to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary.
