We were requested by NWAS to assist a woman with a lower leg injury on the Coffin Route, near Grasmere. We attended along with the air ambulance and the woman was evacuated to hospital
The team assisted a 79-year-old woman after she fell and sustained injuries to her head and wrist. She was only a short distance from the road, where an ambulance could get to. She was helped to the ambulance and taken to hospital.
Because of wrong information and location, the team was on the Loughrigg side of Rydal Water looking for a 16 year old female from Morecambe. Ankle bootees may have caused her to fall and sustain a fracture to her right leg. Stretchered to Hart Head Farm to an awaiting ambulance.
