Incident Report #17 1974

Female (42), from London, slipped and fell sixty feet on Pike Howe, Langdale. She received serious head, neck and back injuries. The team carried her down the fell on a stretcher and she was taken to the County Hospital, Kendal.
Footnote: This woman had good clothing but her footwear left much to be desired—short Wellingtons with smooth soles. The cause of the accident is something of a mystery: she either slipped or over balanced. Weather conditions: very warm, dry and sunny.
