INCIDENT 59/2020 – Aug. 24th Mon. 16.55hrs – Baxengill Gorge, Ingleton – Mountain Incident

Very soon after members returned home from incident number 58, a call was received to a visitor (f, 39) who had sustained a suspected ankle fracture on the return half of the Ingleton Watefalls Trail. A hasty search by the first team members on scene at Beezleys found her on the main path, near the viewing bridge in Baxengill Gorge. Other members took stretcher, splints and other casualty care equipment down to the site, then carried the patient back to Beezleys. With YAS under strain in the area, the patient and her family agreed to use their own car to take her to their local hospital, themselves. Team members decontaminated equipment, then stood down.
