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.”
