2019 Incident #8: 15th April 13:40 – The Helm

Team called by Cumbria police after receiving reports of a walker close to Underhelm Wood (The Helm) having a fall and suffering from chest and shoulder pains. We located the casualty and after assessment of injuries they were placed in a vacuum mattress and stretchered down to an awaiting land ambulance. We did however manage to attract some inquisitive locals, who seemed more interested in what our packs contained.
