Levers Waterfall

Incident 51 of 2022
22/11/22, 13.39, Levers Waterfall, SD282990
The first snows of winter had just arrived on the highest tops, and it was cold in the valleys. We were called by Cumbria Police about a male walker who had fallen near Levers Waterfall, downstream from the dam. He had an ankle injury and it could not weight-bear. We despatched two Land Rovers up the track to the dam, and walked across to him. He was assessed, splinted and stretchered across the beck and back to the track. Our Land Rover ambulance then drove him back to our base, from where a land ambulance took him to Royal Lancaster Hospital for further treatment.
9 volunteer team members attended, and the incident lasted for 2 hours and 6 minutes.
