INCIDENT 06/2019 – Jan. 27th. Sun. 14.02hrs – Ingleborough, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue

A team member came across a walker, one of a group of 5, clearly showing signs of mild hypothermia. The casualty was provided with additional warm clothing, food and drink, and the team member requested assistance in getting the casualty off the hill. A rendezvous at Trow Gill was agreed as the casualty was warming sufficiently to walk, initially with assistance.

A team vehicle met the group at the base of Trow Gill, and transported them back to our Depot at Clapham, to meet with members of their party who had gone to collect their vehicle. After a final check up, the casualty was allowed to return home with his party.
