Walna Scar 28th December 2017 14:36hrs 39/2017
The afternoon was cold, dry and sunny.
The Team was tasked to assist a female walker who had slipped whilst negotiating her way round some rocks on the main Walna Scar track below Coniston Old Man. She had injured her ankle.
The lady was helped and kept company by passers by until we arrived. Fortunately the good track which is an old drovers road, allowed us to drive most of the way to the scene. Her ankle was splinted and she was then carried by stretcher the short distance to the Land Rover. She was taken to the Base and handed over to the paramedics for her onward journey to Furness General Hospital.
