Mountain Rescue aid injured walkers
MOUNTAIN Rescue was called out to assist two walkers who were injured while enjoying a day out on Bank Holiday Monday.
A 45-year-old woman from Siddington was airlifted to Macclesfield Hospital after slipping and hurting her leg at Teggs Nose the afternoon of Monday, December 28.
And on the same day a 52-year-old lady had to be rescued after twisting her ankle on a muddy path along the Dane Valley Way in Wincle. The Buxton and Mountain Rescue team was called to help paramedics in both incidents. A spokesman for the team said: “Paramedics required assistance to transfer the [first casualty] from the scene to the aircraft waiting on level ground at Clough Farm. “It was a short but steep descent on a mountain rescue stretcher but within 30 minutes the lady was being lifted into the air ambulance for a short trip to Macclesfield hospital.
He added: “Before the aircraft could lift off a second call for the mountain rescue was received, this time to the Dane Valley near Wincle.
A spokesperson for the North West Ambulance Service said: “Both patients were taken to Macclesfield hospital with minor injuries.”
