LocationLow Fell summit

Two walkers were traversing the Low Fell tops, when one went over on their ankle, suffering a painful fracture and dislocation. A Great North Air Ambulance helicopter was able to land and treat the casualty before the Team arrived, leaving us the relatively straightforward job of packaging the casualty on a stretcher and transferring them to the helicopter. As the casualty was flown to the Cumbria Infirmary Carlisle, the Team assisted their walking partner off the fell and back to their vehicle.
