Incident Report #9 2014

A woman sustained a nasty lower leg fracture when she slipped on a frozen ground. There was initial difficulty in working out where they were. Their starting point was initially reported inaccurately. We eventually worked out where they were and located them. Lack of suitable clothing for the wet, wintry conditions led both people to get very cold, and they should consider themselves lucky to have been located so quickly.

Incident Report #61 1997

This 35-year-old man suffered an epileptic fit while descending after a days walk. He had come round by the time we got there, so we walked down with him. It was a hot, sunny day, and we were a little surprised at the amount of clothing he was wearing. We have seen people wearing less when it's snowing.
