Old Man of Coniston 30th September 2017 18:47hrs 31/2017


It had been a wet day and darkness was approaching.

The team were contacted by the North West Ambulance Service to an incident on the Old Man of Coniston to a lone male walker who was feeling sick and unwell.

The location given placed the male high up on the fell so a full team call out was initiated. Team members were asked to ascend the fell from various locations.

The male was soon located on the main path from Fell Gate car park to Windy Gap.

He was taken back to base where further checks were made and after a warm drink and food he felt well enough to go on his way.

This call out involved 11 members and lasted just over 1 hour.
