Tarn Hows 28th September 2015 10:11hrs 52/2015
It was a warm, sunny morning, with clear skies.
The North West Ambulance Service asked us to go to the assistance of a lady who had been walking round Tarn Hows when she slipped on a grassy slope. She had sustained an injury to her ankle, possibly a fracture.
On arrival, the paramedics were already on scene and treating the casualty, but their ambulance was not able to negotiate the narrow path down towards the tarn. Only one land rover was therefore required for the simple evacuation to the main car park, where she was transferred to the ambulance for her onward journey to Furness General.
A total of 10 Team Members responded to this call out which took 1 1/4 hours.
