Four ambitious young men were attempting to wild camp near Easedale Tarn when the extreme weather got the better of them.
They called for help and were assisted off by the team.
An early start had us heading up to Easedale Tarn to assist a woman who had sustained injuries to her upper arm. She was treated by team members and evacuated by stretcher with help from Kendal MRT.
A woman in her 60s slipped on wet ground and suffered an injury to he lower back. She was unable to continue wlaking, so the team was called. She was treated by team members and evacuated by Great North Air Ambulance
A woman walking with her son slipped and sustained a suspected lower leg fracture. She was treated by air ambulance and the carried by stretcher to their aircraft. She was then flown into the valley and transported back to Ambleside by team vehicle, then transferred to a conventional ambulance for transport to hospital.
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 despondent male was reported as in danger in the Grasmere area. His car had been located by police, so acting on information provided by them, we searched a number of locations between Grasmere and Sergeant Man. He was located on the path coming down from Easedale Tarn. He was escorted the remainder of the way down and handed over to police for safekeeping.
A man was reported to have sustained head injuries when he fell near Easedale Tarn. The team were just mobilising when we received a second call saying he was OK. We went no further. Probably just a s well, because the grid reference passed put the location in the valley floor in Langdale!
Not long returned from the previous incident when we had to return to pretty much the same spot to rescue a woman who had suffered an injury to her hip when she fell. She was treated by team members and evacuated to the valley with help from Kendal MRT
The team was alerted regarding an incident that had been reported via a very poor mobile phone contact. It came in as 'Greasedale' Tarn, and thinking Easedale Tarn, the police called us. LAMRT was mobilised to Easedale Tarn,
