Following our very early morning callout (see callout 19) we were contacted at 15:48 with reports of an injured walker on the southern edge path of Kinder Scout. Following a discussion with our casualty it was clear he couldn’t weight bear and would need stretchering off the hill.
Four hill parties were sent to the casualty and his wife via Edale Cross. He was treated and carried down to our Land Rover at the top of Jacob’s Ladder, where they were transferred back down to Hayfield. The couple were then returned to their car in Edale, so they could attend hospital and the team could stand down after a busy day.
