INCIDENT 92/2019 – Nov. 3rd. Sun. 13.06hrs – ‘Sulber cross-roads’, Ingleborough – Mountain Incident

A walker (f, 42), having climbed Ingleborough from Clapham, slipped on the descent path across Simon Fell Breast, injuring an ankle. She attempted to continue the walk for about a mile, but eventually accepted that assistance was needed. A passer-by (coincidentally a member of a lowland search team) provided a group shelter, to keep out the cold, and another walking group stopped to help. A small CRO team drove up to ‘Sulber cross-roads’, collecting two YAS paramedics en route. The casualty declined any treatment beyond a little pain relief. One CRO Land Rover drove her and her husband back to their own car in Clapham car park. The other CRO Land Rover returned the YAS personnel to their ambulance at the road-head, near Selside and all stood down.
