Casualty airlifted from coastal path

The team were called this afternoon to a report of a walker with a broken ankle on the coastal path.

South Western Ambulance had received a call from the walkers partner stating they were South of Verney Farm, and asked for Coastguard assistance.

The team arrived and started to treat the female before Rescue 106 from Portland arrived.

Both walkers were well prepared but as they had climbed over a stone style , the lady slipped and turned her ankle.

The Coastguard team assisted the winch-man before transferring the lady via a stretcher to the aircraft , for the short flight to the Poole HLS.
