Incident 5/2018 – Feb. 5th Mon. 15.49 Ingleborough, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue

On the summit of Ingleborough, a paraglider fell about 3 metres when his parachute stalled whilst he was taking off. He suffered a suspected fracture to an ankle. Remarkably, and with the generous help of passing walkers, the injured person had the tenacity to shuffle and slide a considerable way down from the summit. CRO team members and a Yorkshire Ambulance paramedic treated the injured person and carried him in a stretcher to a CRO vehicle for transport along a rough track down to Ingleton.
