On Saturday 24th September at 14.00hrs Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called by Cumbria Police with regard to a woman who had been walking down from Red Tarn on the main path back to Glenridding when she went over on her ankle.  Fortunately the Team members were at Patterdale Base on their Casualty Care Course, ready for their exams in two weeks time, and were quickly dispatched to the scene.

On arrival the lady was assessed and treated for a suspected fractured ankle. She was given pain relief and carried down to a team Landrover. She was then transferred to her own vehicle and driven to hospital by her husband for further treatment.  

The team wishes her a speedy recovery and hopefully enjoy the rest of their holiday.  20 team members attended the rescue which took just over two hours.
