The Initial Response Team, the IRT, was tasked rescue a 40 year old female runner who had fallen and sustained a suspected broken ankle. She was participating in the annual Charmouth Challenge and had lost her footing crossing a stile. Fortunately an off duty coastguard who was helping marshall the event was able to assist. She had fallen on a fairly remote stretch of the coast path, east of Charmouth, near Westhay Farm. South West Ambulance co- responders were also sent to the scene. Due to the difficult access and the level of pain the casualty was in, the coastguard helicopter airlifted her to Dorchester Hospital.
