Location: Crag Lough, Hadrian’s Wall
Mid-afternoon yesterday a climber fell from Crag Lough and sustained serious injuries. The North East Ambulance Service requested the assistance of North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves and within 9 minutes our volunteers were en-route with two Team 4x4s deployed.
The Doctor and Paramedic from the Great North Air Ambulance Service were first on scene and assessed, treated and stabilised the casualty.
Given the difficult, unstable terrain below the crag and the worsening condition of the casualty, the Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) search and rescue helicopter was requested with a view to winching the casualty on board. Thankfully a helicopter from Caernarfon was training in the Lake District and swiftly arrived on scene.
Great multi-agency teamwork then led to the successful evacuation of the injured climber to hospital. We hope he makes a full and swift recovery, and is back out climbing again very soon.
The incident involved 25 Team members for 3 hours 15 minutes.
