It was a dry, sunny afternoon and quite mild.
We were called out by the North West Ambulance Service to go to the aid of a young child, who was fitting whilst out with his family walking around this beauty spot, north east of Coniston.
Due to the seriousness and age of the casualty, the first land rover set off from the base very quickly. Fortunately the ambulance had already arrived and the team met up with the paramedics on the path as they made their way back to the vehicle with the family. The little boy had stopped fitting. The Great North Air Ambulance also landed shortly afterwards. After showing the other children round the land rovers, we returned to base.
12 Team Members responded to this call out which took 1 hour.
