Mountain Rescue Teams help recover woman with injured ankle


Mountain Rescue Teams from Wasdale and Keswick were called out on Sunday 15th June to assist a 19 year old woman that had fallen and injured her ankle near to Sty Head pass. 

A spokesperson from Keswick MRT said:

"The group she was with attempted to help her down to Seathwaite but they realised this would not be possible and so called for help.

"It was fortunate that Wasdale MRT had set off for a training exercise and were relatively near to the casualty site. They immediately called off the training and went to assist.

"After the ankle was treated and pain relief provided the Wasdale team agreed to stretcher the casualty down towards Seathwaite for a handover with Keswick MRT near to Stockley Bridge. Keswick would then complete the carry.

"The Covid-19 threat means rescue teams protect themselves with PPE. Bear in mind that Sunday was a very hot and muggy day and so a long stretcher carry in PPE is particularly difficult.

"Our thanks go to the Wasdale team who, following the handover, had to ascend back over Sty Head to Wasdale. A sterling effort."
