A couple became cragfast after getting on to steep ground and slipping down some wet rock that they were then unable to get back up. The were recovered by team members and assisted back down. A map, compass and a sense of self-preservation might have helps... We were assisted by some Norwegian rescuers who have been visiting us for a few days http://www.folkehjelp.no/
Male (20), of Blackpool slipped and fell on wet rocks at Blake Rigg, Langdale and dislocated his shoulder. The team conveyed him down the fell on a stretcher and he was taken by ambulance to the County Hospital, Kendal.
Footnote: Ground conditions were fairly wet and his footwear was of the smooth soled variety. Neither did he have equipment or proper clothing for fell walking.
The Team were called to search a crag for a 13 year old boy who was last seen on ledges near a 200' drop. Darkness and snow showers hampered the search of the face. Eventually located and extracted to safety suffering from shock and exposure. Treated by team Doctor.
Man, aged 33 years, walking down Blake Rigg towards Blea Tarn became crag bound. Persons in the area assisted the man down off the crag and with the Team brought down the man who was conveyed by Ambulance to County Hospital, Kendal, suffering from shock and slight exposure.
During the preliminary checks on the previous incident, a police officer spotted some lights on Blake Rigg which appeared to be people struggling to find a way over difficult terrain. Additional team members were sent to investigate, but it became clear that there was probably nothing wrong when all the lights suddenly moved uphill en-mass. Probably trainees on a night navigation exercise.
