A lady had injured her knee whilst walking on the Western Edge path of Kinder Scout, between Red Brook and Kinder Low End. We were able to locate her position through What3Words and Sarcall PhoneFind. We used a vacuum splint to stabilise the lady’s leg and then evacuated her to Edale Cross on our stretcher and wheel. She was well enough to sit on the back seat of our Landrover for the drive to base. Her husband was then able to take her to hospital in their car.
We wish her a speedy recovery.
