Levers Hawse

Incident 17 of 2023:-
08/04/23, 15.08, Levers Hawse, SD271993
The Easter weather was being kind to all our visitors with another sunny day, but unfortunately a man slipped on the high fells, and his ankle was unable to weight-bear. Cumbria Police asked us to help and we despatched two Land Rovers up to Levers Water dam, intending to walk up from there. However, Helimed 08 from Blackpool had also been requested, and it landed on scene well before we would have got there. There was enough manpower around the casualty (including a team member on a walk) to carry him to the helicopter for evacuation, so we were stood down.
12 personnel attended for 1 hour and 34 minutes.
