Little Arrow Moor

Incident 14 of 2023:-
16/03/23, 10.26, Little Arrow Moor, SD284956
It was a very wet day in the Coniston area, with the becks in spate and roads starting to flood. A local lady, out for a trail run from home with her dog, slipped on the wet grass and her ankle could no longer weight-bear. Realising that she needed the help of Mountain Rescue, she was able to ring the Police and request our assistance. We despatched 2 Land Rovers to scene for a shortish, but extremely wet, walk to the casualty where we gave her some painkillers for her injury, splinted her leg and stretchered her to the waiting vehicles. We then drove her back to our base to await a Land Ambulance from North West Ambulance Service, who took her to Furness General Hospital for further treatment.
