INCIDENT 20/2020 – May 30th. Sat. 11.44hrs – Field off Oddie’s Lane, Ingleton, Mountain Incident

Having travelled by train and taxi, to follow the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail, a walker (m, 72) found it closed, so tried to bypass the barrier. In a field across the river from the Trail entrance, he slipped and fell. Perhaps because of one of his medical conditions, he was reported to be experiencing breathing difficulty. YAS asked for assistance in locating him and then, when the paramedics had completed their assessment, team members evacuated him to the road ambulance on Oddie’s Lane.
