Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out by Cumbria Police at 15.00hrs Saturday 16th October to a woman who had slipped whilst descending towards Seldom Seen from Sheffield Pike.  

9 team members, who were already at base for a prior engagement, attended in two vehicles and found the casualty around 100 metres from the track.  Team medics assessed the woman who had a suspected fractured wrist, which was placed in a splint and pain relief given. Due to the nature of the injury the woman was able to walk to the team Landrover where she was conveyed to the rescue base at Patterdale from where she made her way to hospital with her colleague for treatment.  

The rescue took less than an hour to complete.
