Incident 37/2018 – Jun. 9th Sat 17.34 Catrigg, Stainforth, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue

A walker, who had strayed slightly off the footpath from Catrigg to Stainforth, slipped on a grassy bank and went over on his ankle – reportedly hearing a snap. He was treated for a possible fracture by Yorkshire Ambulance Service paramedics and CRO team members. A short, but tricky, stretcher carry enabled the injured person to be taken by a CRO vehicle to the roadhead. Volunteer hours: 24 TwitterPrintFacebookGoogle+emailLinkedinStumbleUpon
