She had fallen on the Pennine Way near Denshaw, suffering an ankle injury.

"She was splinted and packaged on our stretcher and wheel before the 1km carry back to the car park, from where she was transported to hospital by her companions for further treatment." 

Eighteen OMRT personnel were involved for two hours.
