This middle-aged male from Poulton-le-Fylde could not continue his walk after complaining of pains in his knee. An old injury had flared up. This incident was reported as Nab Scar, but he was eventually found on Heron Pike and stretchered off. He was taken to Westmorland General Hospital via county ambulance.
A male walker contacted us to say that he had sustained a leg injury in the vicinity of Heron Pike. When we got there we found that he had a head injury well. He was drifting in and out of consciousness and this was cause for concern. A helicopter was requested to assist, but this had to make a 'precautionary emergency landing' when it suffered a suspected mechanical failure. Eventually it picked up the casualty from near Alcock Tarn. Kendal MRT assisted us as well. His companion, who had gone for help, took some finding, but that's another story.
While we were dealing with previous two incidents it suddenly became a very busy day! A woman slipped on Heron Pike and dislocated her shoulder. A few remaining team members surplus from the previous two rescues were dispatched along with members of Kendal MRT to deal with this. They administered first aid and pain relief and she was evacuated by the air ambulance which had returned to assist, having dropped off the first casualty. Our drying room was very full for the next 24 hours!
