The weather was dry with a mixture of cloud and sunshine. There was a cool breeze.
The team was asked to assist Langdale & Ambleside MR Team with the evacuation of a gentleman who had possibly suffered a stroke whilst walking in this picturesque part of Little Langdale. Time is of the essence where someone is thought to be suffering from this condition.
One landrover set off from the base with a second following shortly behind along with other members who made their own way to the incident. Two paramedics were already on scene with LAMRT. The casualty was stretchered to the waiting ambulance for his forward journey to hospital.
9 members responded to this call out which only took 1 hour due to the relatively close location and situation.
