It was a dry, fairly sunny day, with light cloud.
The North West Ambulance Service requested our assistance with the evacuation of a gentleman. He had slipped somewhere in the vicinity of the Cumbria Way, near the shoreline west of Coniston Water. One land rover was deployed to the area, and later a number of Team personnel were standing by at the base ready to attend once the full situation had been assessed.
Assisted by staff and rescue boat from the Priestley Centre the casualty was swiftly evacuated to a waiting land ambulance.Consequently the rest of the team waiting in the base were stood down.
14 team members responded to this incident, which took just over an hour.
