Stable Harvey 4th June 2017, 14:02hrs 16/2017
The weather was warm and the skies were clear. There was a fell running event taking place in the village.
The team were contacted by NWAS (North West Ambulance Service) to an incident involving a fell runner from the trail race.
It had been reported to NWAS by a Marshall that this male competitor had collapsed.
Due to the nature of the incident the first land rover was quickly dispatched and made way to the casualties location. On arrival the team met the casualty and treated him for exhaustion.
A NWAS ambulance had been dispatched and we organised to rendezvous with them back at the event medics base at Coniston Hall.
In total this call out lasted just over 1 hour and involved 18 team members.
