Iron Keld 20th February 09:20hrs 5/2016


It was a wet, breezy morning.

The Incident was actually transferred to Coniston Mountain Rescue Team from Langdale and Ambleside MRT due to the location being within our area. The original call came from NWAS (North West Ambulance Service) who requested our assistance with a male who had collapsed on the footpath running south of Iron Keld.

Two Land Rovers were deployed and on arrival, a paramedic was already on scene. We helped with the treatment of the casualty but sadly the gentleman passed away.

11 Team personnel attended this call out which took 3 hours due to the nature of the incident.

Our thoughts are with the family and friends at this sad time.
