Incident 4/2017 – Jan 14th Sat. 13.51 – Ingleborough, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue.

A CRO member (former Chairman and controller), out for a walk, reported that a walker (m,12) had sustained an ankle injury, 50m from the summit of Ingleborough, on the path towards Ingleton. He used his own emergency equipment to keep the boy warm until help arrived. Team members carried him to a Yorkshire Air Ambulance – requested because of the patient’s cold condition and the time a stretcher evacuation would take – and he was flown down to Horton in Ribblesdale playing field, for transfer to a YAS road ambulance. His companion was accompanied down to the team Land Rovers, near Crina Bottom, for a lift to their accommodation, in Chapel le dale. However, well before the returning rescue party reached the vehicles, the text alerts fired off again . . . . . . ..
