Call Out Details:
A support runner for a “Bob Graham round attempt” reportedly fell 15ft sustaining a head injury and had been unconscious for 15 minutes. When he recovered consciousness, a companion began to assist him off the fell. As the location was somewhat unclear, Searchdog Isla was deployed with her handler from Rosthwaite, and Search Dog Broch and handler set out from Keswick.
Call Out Conclusion:
Somehow, the casualty party evaded Isla and Martin, but turned up at Seathwaite Farm just in time to be met by Broch and Rob as they were about to set out. Keswick MRT gave the casualty a swift assessment and then transported him to Keswick Base where a Swift response team from Great North Air Ambulance examined him. He was taken to hospital for further treatment.
