Short report
Request from Kinder MRT for dogs to assist with search for party of walkers one of whom was reported as injured. The party had started from Edale, walked up Jacob’s Ladder but became lost after straying from the path on the plateau. As dogs were in the process of being deployed the party were located by a police helicopter. The police helicopter was unable to land due to poor terrain but was able to guide a Kinder MRT section to the lost walkers location from where a Coastguard S92 helicopter ultimately evacuated the casualty and companions to hospital.
