Incident 37/2016 – May 24th Tue. 12.03 – ‘Little Gordale’, Janet’s Foss, Malham, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue

A walker (m,88) slipped or stumbled on the path through the wood, 100m below Janet’s Foss. In doing so, he grabbed his daughter (59) for support and they both fell. He sustained a hip injury and she a knee injury. Both had their injuries immobilised before being carried by stretcher to road ambulances near Gordale Bridge. An air ambulance also attended.

Thanks to the lads of the Army Foundation College, Harrogate, for their help with both carries.
