Tarn Hows

Incident 15 of 2023:-
25/03/23, 14.13, Tarn Hows, SD324997
There had been a lot of rain in the Lakes, and paths were muddy and slippery. There were still showers around when a lady fell on a steep section of path below Tarn Hows, and her ankle would not weight-bear. NorthWest Ambulance Service asked us to help, and we despatched two Land Rovers as close as we could get.
The lady was assessed, strong pain relief given, her ankle splinted and she was carried down the hill to our converted Land Rover ambulance. We then drove her to our base to meet a land ambulance for transfer to Furness General Hospital and further treatment.
13 volunteer members attended for 2 hours and 20 minutes.
