This man fell 20 feet to be stopped only by the ground, due to his companions lack of belaying technique. The man sustained serious h€&d, spinal, arm and leg injuries. The team conveyed him off the fell using a vacuum mattress.
'Flashing' lights were seen on Scout Crag. A small party went to investigate and found 4 women climbers (aged 40-60) who had finished their climb rather later than anticipated. All were unhurt and nobody was in any difficulty.
A man who had been evicted from the pub, went on to the fells in a drunken state. He found his way to a precarious spot on Upper Scout Crag and collapsed, unconscious and fitting. He was evacuated from the fell and taken to Kendal Hospital.
A man descending a gully after completing a climb took a tumble and sustained injuries to his spine, leg and hand. He was immobilised with our vacuum mattress and a cervical collar and evacuated to the valley bottom. It turned out that he had fractured his C5 and C6 vertebrae. It's a good job we didn't let him walk down, as he wanted to.
The team went to the aid of a 23 year old man from Hertfordshire who decided to climb solo and unroped. He slipped and fell 20' to base of crag fracturing his left leg and incurring minor head injuries — no helmet worn.
