Mountain rescuers and air ambulance called after walker fell in Derbyshire nature reserve
An air ambulance and mountain rescuers were called to Bakewell yesterday after a casualty was left unable to walk following a fall.
Emergency workers responded to the incident in Lathkill Dale, Haddon Grove at around 2.20pm on Wednesday, April 28 after a walker tripped, while out with a group of young people and exacerbated a previous hip injury.
The casualty was in ‘great pain and unable to walk any further’ according to the group, who then called 999.
An air ambulance, paramedics and Buxton and Edale Mountain Rescue Teams arrived at the scene to move the casualty.
After receiving pain relief, the casualty was placed on a stretcher and carried down along the path beside the river and up to a nearby farm.
The patient was then taken to hospital by the air ambulance.
A spokesperson for Buxton Mountain Rescue said: “Our best wishes go to the casualty for a speedy recovery and hope the party can get back together soon to complete their journey.”
