Incident 69/2017 – Sep. 9th Sat. 10.40 – Humphrey Bottom, Ingleborough, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue.

A walker (f, 66) slipped, while descending the stone -pitched path from Ingleborough to Humphrey Bottom, falling and rolling about 30m. She sustained head, hand and leg injuries. After assessment, first aid and ‘packaging’, CRO members stretchered her about 100m to where an air ambulance could land. This flew her, initally, down to a road ambulance, but after re-assessment by paramedics, it flew her on to hospital.
