Froggatt Edge

Incident 65 - Sunday 23rd June 2019 16:45. A call from the Duty controller via Derbyshire Constabulary to a fallen climber on Froggatt Edge. The climber had taken a three metre fall before any chance of protection could have been put in to place and landed on a flake of rock. The team are able to drive in 4x4 vehicles to the top of the crag so team members were quickly on scene. The climber had suffered damage to their lower back and were given pain relief before being packaged in a vacuum mattress, (full body splint). It was decided to Stretcher them back to the roadhead so as not to make the injuries any worse by a very rough ride in the Stretcher point in the Landrover. The East Midlands Ambulance Service crew were waiting at the roadhead to reassess the patient before onward transfer to the Children's Hospital in Sheffield. Earlier in the day a car had been reported parked in front of the access gate at the road which would have slowed our response to the casualty. Just a timely reminder for people to not park in front of gates as it can impede all emergency services.
