A man slipped and suffered a suspected lower leg fracture close to Rydal Cave. We are able to get very close to this location with our 4WD vehilce, so it's unlikely too much sweat was produced during this rescue. The man was evacuated to a waiting ambulance back at the road head.
A 14-year old boy suffered a dislocated knee when he slipped on frozen ground. He was evacuated to Ambleside and transferred to hospital. We were assisted by two Bowland Pennine MRT members who were in the area.
