Buck Pike

12:58 (Grid SD 262 972)

It was a cold and windy day on the fell-tops when the team was contacted by NWAS (North West Ambulance Service) asking us to assist a lady who was feeling nauseous and faint at the top of Buck Pike, just south of Dow Crag.

Our Land Rover Defenders could get us part of the way there, but the rest was a stiff walk up the fell.

After a medical assessment, some chocolate, and some sweet tea, the lady felt well enough to walk with us down to the vehicles.

Paramedics from NWAS met us back at base, assessed the lady, and decided on no further treatment being necessary.

This incident was attended by 14 team members, and lasted 2.5 hours.
