We were called at 13:15 to a lady with a lower leg injury near the top of Sandy Heys on Kinder Scout. As this was a mid-week call, the number of available team members was low, so we requested assistance from our colleagues in Glossop Mountain Rescue Team, who provided some additional team members to help. Additionally we were offered assistance from the Coastguard helicopter, who were able to attend and winch the lady from her location and fly her directly to hospital in Sheffield.
We would like to thank both Glossop MRT and the Coastguard helicopter crew for their assistance in this rescue and wish the injured lady a speedy recovery.
