Grindslow Knoll

Incident 87 - Friday 9th August 2019 16:43hrs Just as team members were travelling home from their day jobs a call came in from Derbyshire Constabulary to go to the rescue of a person who had slipped on Kinder Scout. Two people on holiday from abroad suddenly found their day turned upside down when one of them slipped and aggravated an old ankle injury which rendered them helpless to walk. The duty controller pinpointed their position using Phone Find technology. As is usual on midweek jobs our colleagues from Buxton Mountain Rescue Team were requested to help. Team members from both teams were swiftly at the RV where they were despatched to go up the Old Sled road to the Casualty site. With ever threatening heavy rain showers sweeping across the whole area a very fast response to the casualty site was in order. Team members quickly arrived and a team casualty carer examined the walker before pain relief was administered to a painful injury. After packaging the walker onto a mountain rescue stretcher they and their friends were brought down to meet the East Midlands Ambulance Service crew at the Nags Head who reexamined the casualty before onward transportation to hospital for X-rays and further treatment.
