Kinder Mountain Rescue Team
Saving lives in wild and remote places

24: Callout Sunday 27th May 2018

The team were alerted to assist in locating a child who had become separated from his family whilst walking on Kinder. Having spoken to his father, there was a strong feeling that the child had been seen on the edge path following the family’s intended route. In the hope that he had made his way down, we initially went to check the family car and the routes down to it. At the same time a request was made for NPAS helicopter support, which had already been tasked. Whilst checking the roads and speaking to walkers coming off the hill, a team member was told that a child matching the description had been seen at the bottom of William Clough. This was passed onto the NPAS crew who were able to check and it was shortly confirmed that the child had been assisted by other walkers and reunited with his father.

A good result all round.

Whilst returning from exercise we were alerted to an injured team member who had been hurt whilst helping prepare a field for a gymkhana. We provided casualty care from our paramedic whilst waiting for a land ambulance and helimed helicopter. After examination by the helimed doctor, the casualty was transported by land ambulance to hospital. Many thanks to the member of Buxton MRT who provided initial casualty care.
