INCIDENT 46/2020 – Aug.8th Sat. 14.15hrs – Pen y ghent – Mountain Incident

A walker (f, 48) stumbled on the final climb up the south end of Pen y ghent, hitting her head as she stood up again and sustaining a head injury. A passing doctor helped staunch the bleeding from the scalp wound and, knowing that help had been requested, advised  that she might begin to walk back down. The first  team members to arrive met the casualty’s party at the lower climb and accompanied them down to Brackenbottom Scar, where she transferred to a team vehicle for the drive down to Horton. The YAS road ambulance stood down when the casualty’s party agreed to visit their local hospital for a check-up, on the way home
