Keswick Mountain Rescue Team attend teenager who fell while climbing


Yesterday, Keswick Mountain Rescue Team attended Shepherds Crag in Borrowdale to assist a teenager who had fallen while climbing. 

A spokesperson from KMRT said:

"A 19 year old fell 8 metres whilst climbing the route M.G.C. at Shepherds Crag in Borrowdale.

"Unfortunately he hit the ground and was in and out of consciousness after a bang to the head. 

"Due to the nature of the injury, air and road ambulance teams attended and treated the casualty.
"Keswick MRT packaged the man in a vacuum mattress and stretchered him to a road ambulance which then took him to the Cumberland Infirmary at Carlisle.

"24 hours later we received news that he had been discharged from hospital with “just” bruises to his shoulder and a cut to the head.

"He was remarkably lucky. The climber gave us permission to share the photo of his helmet and this may have saved his life or prevented a life changing injury."

The rescue consisted of 16 team members, and took 2 hours until completion.
