A 64-year-old lone man slipped and suffered a suspected fractured ankle. It was getting late, dark, wet and windy, so he was forced to start crawling down the hill because there was nobody else around. He was spotted by two runners, who went to his aid, and raised the alarm. A local farmer also tried to reach him in his Landrover. We treated him, and stretchered him down and on to hospital.
