INCIDENT 83/2020 – Dec. 6th Sun. 13.23 – Malham Cove, Malham, North Yorkshire – Mountain Incident

YAS asked for CRO’s assistance when a walker (f, 70) was reported to have fallen at the top of Malham Cove. Although she had sustained a painful shoulder injury, she was determined to set off to walk back down the steps at the side of the Cove, with support from her husband. When the first team member arrived on scene patient, spouse and paramedics were walking slowly and carefully towards the road and the YAS rapid response car, so the team stood down.
