The team were called to assist a female walker who had slipped and sustained a fractured leg. Having made contact and establishing their position, parties made their way to the casualty’s location. Due to low initial numbers, support was also requested from Glossop MRT. A request was made for a HELIMED to evacuate the injured lady but due to the inclement weather it was unable to attend. The lady was then carried by stretcher to a waiting ambulance at Tom Heys Farm before being taken to Stepping Hill Hospital.
