We assisted police in checking the area after multiple reports of flares were recieved... we think someone was mucking about... cheers.. we had nothing better to do..
An 11-year-old boy slipped and sustained a bad gash to his knee. He was treated at the scene by the group leader, a Furness MRT member, and a Paramedic who was called, and carried to an ambulance by stretcher, by ourselves and Kendal MRT, who had also been called.
Icy back roads and tracks made it difficult for the local ambulance to access a remote house. We assisted them in getting to their patient, who after assessment, decided she didn't need to go to hospital.
While the previous rescue was ongoing we were requested to assist the ambulance service with a casualty on Orrest Head. She was assisted down to the road and then returned to her accommodation, having refused to go to hospital with paramedics.
An unusually early start saw us heading up Orrest Head to assist a man with a suspected fractured humerus. He was treated and stretchered off to a waiting ambulance. We hope he made it to the wedding he was due to attend that afternoon. Maybe if he'd been able to be treated in Kendal, it may have been possible, but since he was going to have to go to Lancaster it seemed unlikely.
A woman slipped and sustained a serious ankle fracture while descending Orrest Head. An ambulance was initially called, and an air ambulance was tasked and we were requested to attend to help with treatment and to move the casualty from the accident site to the air ambulance.
A 39-year-old woman collapsed with severe abdominal pain. A teenage family member ran down a steep dirt bank to help her and slipped, sustaining back, neck and knee injuries. Both were treated and stretchered to waiting ambulances.
