Holme Fell May 19th 2013 13:10hrs (17/2013)
The weather was dry, mostly cloudy but mild. The wind was very light.
A lady was walking with a party of about 12 people on Holme Fell. Holme Fell is a small range of low fells north east of Coniston and can remain quite boggy in parts. This casualty slipped on very wet ground and sustained a possible fracture to her left ankle.
Prior to setting off from the base we were advised that the Great North Air Ambulance was already en route and would be about 20 minutes. They arrived at the incident before the team and treated the lady. All we had to do was stretcher her to the helicopter. She was taken to Furness General Hospital.
11 members attended this callout which took just over 2 hours.
