Barrow Wood – Hodge Close

Barrow Wood – Hodge Close

03:53 (Grid NY 312 014)

Very early morning request from NWAS, who were unable to get their ambulance to a 48-year-old male. The casualty was reported to be suffering from chest pains whilst camping near to Hodge Close.
The call was initially to Langdale Ambleside MRT, who passed it to us as Barrow Wood is in our patch.
We deployed three Land Rovers to assist, but were stood down en-route, and able to return to our beds.

The incident was attended by 15 team members, and lasted 30 minutes.
