A second incident not a million miles from the previous one... a man slipped on a frozen path and sustained an injury to his thigh. He was treated by team members and evacuated by stretcher to meet an ambulance in WIndermere
We assisted police in checking the area after multiple reports of flares were recieved... we think someone was mucking about... cheers.. we had nothing better to do..
An 11-year-old boy slipped and sustained a bad gash to his knee. He was treated at the scene by the group leader, a Furness MRT member, and a Paramedic who was called, and carried to an ambulance by stretcher, by ourselves and Kendal MRT, who had also been called.
Icy back roads and tracks made it difficult for the local ambulance to access a remote house. We assisted them in getting to their patient, who after assessment, decided she didn't need to go to hospital.
While the previous rescue was ongoing we were requested to assist the ambulance service with a casualty on Orrest Head. She was assisted down to the road and then returned to her accommodation, having refused to go to hospital with paramedics.
