2021-60: Heights of Abraham

Mountain Rescue evacuate 24-year-old with leg injury from Derbyshire beauty spot

Posted by on

The team were called out to assist East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) on Saturday 21 Aug just before 6pm.

A 24-year-old female had fallen sustaining an ankle injury, near the Heights of Abraham visitor centre. She was treated on scene by the team and transported down to Matlock Bath railway station to handover to an EMAS Land Ambulance Crew. Unfortunately  (for the team) the cable car had closed for the day, so no lift to the top!

This was our 60th callout of the year, making us on track for our busiest year ever!
