Incident 83/2016 – Oct. 2nd Sun. 14.17 – Near Upper Long Churn Cave, Horton in Ribblesdale – Mountain Rescue.

No sooner had CRO members cleared up after the helicopter practice than a would-be caver (f, 21) was reported to have dislocated a knee in a slip just beyond the stile leading to the upper entrance to the Long Churn Caves. Her companion had re-located the joint, but she was unable to weight-bear and was in extreme pain. CRO members immobilised the leg and carried her by stretcher, then Land Rover, to a road ambulance waiting in Alum Pot Lane.
