A group of young people were camping at the tarn as part of an expedition. They decided to walk further uphill to watch the sunset. One of them became separated from the rest and subsequently suffered a fall. He sustained multiple injuries, including his head, pelvis and arm. He phoned for help, but was fairly vague about where he was. We managed to locate his companion's camp, and subsequently him. He was treated by team members and airlifted to Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle.
A young man sustained a head injury while scrambling on Tarn Crag. Initially we were told he was being assisted down on foot, but his condition deteriorated somewhat and he was met, treated and evacuated by team members to an ambulance waiting at the car park below.
Shouts for help were heard in the area. This was reported to us and we went to investigate. Several people were spoken to and nobody appeared to be in difficulty. It's just possible that someone was having a 'laugh' and it went to far!
A woman was reported as seperated from her group near Sergeant Man. She was reported by her companions as having no torch and missing since 15:30. The group had searched for themselves for a couple of hours,
