The team was called out to a gentleman who had collapsed on Brown Pike whilst out walking.
Two team members were already walking in the area and therefore went ahead to the casualty. The Great North Air Ambulance however had been able to land fairly close by and two paramedics were already in attendance.
Sadly this gentleman passed away at the scene. Once the rest of the team arrived he was stretchered off the fell and taken back to the rescue base. The protocol for a fatality was adhered to.
Our thoughts are with the man’s family.
