Walker airlifted to safety after sustaining head injury in 20m fall


A 16 member team, including Helicopter support brought about a successful three and half hour rescue operation on Cam Crag Ridge, Langstrath, yesterday (29th December) by Keswick Mountain Rescue Team.
A small group were scrambling up Cam Crag ridge when one of the party fell 15 to 20m sustaining a serious head injury. 

A spokesperson from KMRT said:

"This is an area without a mobile phone signal but fortunately a passerby was able to run to the Langstrath Inn and made the call for help on the landline. The rest of the party did what they could to look after the casualty. 

"Keswick MRT dispatched two vehicles and requested assistance from the Coastguard helicopter. The Great North Air Ambulance provided additional support with their specialist medical teams. 

"Keswick MRT members were first on scene and began treating and packaged the casualty for the winch. The Coastguard helicopter along with the GNAAS medics made their way to Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary."
