INCIDENT 21/2022 – APRIL 9th Sat 12.39 Alongside Gordale Beck, Malham,  North Yorkshire – Mountain Incident

UWFRA forwarded a call from YAS for a walker (m, 30) who had sustained a knee injury while walking alongside Gordale Beck, downstream of Gordale Scar. His location was confirmed using the Phonefind app.  As he was unable to put weight on the injured leg, team members administered pain relief, splinted the leg and put the casualty into an insulated casualty bag. Using a wheeled stretcher, they took him across the beck and to a team Land Rover. He was driven to Malham car park and transferred to a family car to be taken to hospital.
