The team went to the assitance of a 59 year old man from Widnes who got off course and fell a short distance down a gulley. A small sapling saved him from falling any further. He sustained head and chest injuries and a broken leg. The small tree survived intact!
It was reported that a 67 year old man from Ilkley, who was wearing smooth soled shoes, had sustained a fracture to his lower leg. Only a vague location could be given. A search ensued. An R.A.F. Boulmer helicopter in the area on practice was called to assist. Casualty located and flown to Ambleside, then by ambulance to hospital.
