Yewdale Fells

Incident 47 of 2022
13/10/22, 12.01, Yewdale Fells, SD303989
It was a sunny day, and a retired couple had climbed the side of Mart Crag on the steep path from the village. Unfortunately, the lady felt faint and dizzy, and was unable to continue, so they phoned Cumbria Police for help. We were called out and despatched a team to their phone-located position. On arrival, the lady was assessed and as she was feeling a little better than before, we decided to assist her walking (rather than put her in our stretcher) for the longer walk-off but with a gentle gradient.
With help, she made it down to one of our vehicles, and was driven to our base. There, she was assessed again and found well enough to be driven home by her husband after medical advice was given.
11 volunteer team members attended this incident, which lasted for 3 hours.
