The weather was dry, mild and overcast.
The North West Ambulance Service requested our assistance with the evacuation of a gentleman who was suffering severe stomach pain.
He was at the Tranearth Hut which is situated above Torver. The track to the hut is accessible for 4 x 4’s only, hence our involvement. A paramedic was picked up at the village end of the track and taken by landrover to the casualty. The gentleman was able to walk to the vehicle and then drove to the waiting ambulance which took him to Furness General Hospital.
9 members of the team turned out for this incident which only took 1 hour due to the close proximity of the casualty.
