Whilst responding to callout 28 we were called by the Duty Controller with a request to assist a fallen walker on the northern edge path of Kinder Scout. A fast response party was despatched to the location. Due to the distance from the roadhead and the reports of the fall, we requested the assistance of an air ambulance. Helimed 54 was tasked to assist and reached the casualty shortly before our hill party. In the meantime two other hill parties were despatched with the stretcher and other equipment.
After assessing the fallen walker the Helimed 54 crew decided he did not need to be flown to hospital but could be walked off the hill by us. He was walked and then stretchered down to Monks Road, before being returned to Glossop.
