A family wtih young children were delayed by taking shelter from a thunder storm resulting in them geeting caught out by darkness and fatigue without a torch. They were lucky to be assisted by three yong men who were camped at the tarn. They fed and sheltered the family in the tent (cosy, I imagine) and called for help. They were recovered by the team and escorted back to the valley floor and car park. The three campers were left in peace..
A woman slipped on the wet path descending from Stickle Tarn. She sustained a nasty shoulder injury. She was treated by air ambulance paramedic and then evacuated to the dam for the flight to Lancaster
A woman sustained an ankle injury while descending Bright Beck. With help from her husband she managed to descend as far as Stickle Tarn before we located her and evacuated her to the valley by stretcher.. a whole heap less pain....
A 16-year-old male was reported with a knee injury. The team was mobilised, and found the casualty about 600mteres from the road, being assisted by companions. 14 team members for 1.5 hours, plus Air Ambulance
A man suffered a suspected hamstring injury, making walking very difficult and painful. Showing great fortitude, and assisted by his companions, he made significant progress down, before coming to a halt near Stickle Tarn.
The remainder of the group was being assisted down, when a second member of the group succumbed to a similar problem. She rapidly became too weak to continue and a stretcher and additional team members were requested to evacuate her to the valley. About this time we enjoyed a brief but violent thunder storm; something that always enlivens any rescue.
