Pike O'Stickle Screes
Female (30) of Coniston, was struck by a large stone whilst on Rescue No. 20, and she received leg injuries. The team carried her down on a stretcher and she was taken to the County Hospital, Kendal. Footnote: The stone was dislodged by a party further up the scree who were unconnected with the rescue team and previous accident victim. This woman is a very experienced mountaineer and was assisting with Rescue No. 20 when the accident happened.
Student (18) of Nottingham, fell while "scree running" in Pike O'Stickle, Langdale and he received serious head and shoulder injuries. The team carried him down the scree on a stretcher and then he was taken to the County Hospital, Kendal.
Footnote: This man had fairly good footwear but he was descending the screes in short pants without sufficient leg protection against the stones. He had no previous experience on screes. Weather conditions: dry, clear skies but dull.
