On a cool and dry afternoon, a male walker who was running down the side of the fell missed his footing and fell into a stream, sustaining head and knee injuries. Cumbria Police asked us to help, and we despatched two Land Rovers to assist. On arrival, we assessed him, and cleaned and dressed his knee. Helimed 08 from Blackpool also attended. However, the gentleman did not wish to take advantage of air support or land ambulance, so it was recommended to his family that he be taken straight to hospital.
The incident involved 12 volunteer team members for 2.5 hours.
