Man hurt in Lake District fall

[A]t 12:34pm on Friday, volunteers of Patterdale MRT were past a call from colleagues in Keswick MRT to rescue a man who had fallen in the vicinity of Dollywaggon Pike.

At the time it was unknown which direction the man had fallen and with the inability to contact the informant and poor weather conditions in the mountains, the decision was made to call in support from Langdale and Ambleside MRT and a Coastguard rescue helicopter.

The teams were deployed into the key areas to begin a detailed search, with the rescue helicopter in support from the air and lifting resources into the search area.

Contact was eventually established with the informant and it was confirmed they had located the missing man back at Grizedale Tarn after his fall.

The man was checked over was extremely lucky and suffered only minor cuts and bruises.

Patterdale MRT would like to thank all parties involved.
