A walker (m 55) phoned for help, saying that he had collapsed, felt weak and had a pain radiating from the upper left hand side of his chest. He had been walking alone and CRO was able to confirm the walker’s “off-piste” location at the edge of The Allotment on Ingleborough by using a computer based “phone find” application. CRO mobilised their off-road buggy to get help to the walker as quickly as possible and under the care of CRO team members the walker’s condition improved markedly. The team carried the sick walker a short distance by stretcher to a CRO vehicle for transport down to our base in Clapham. There he was transferred into the care of Yorkshire Ambulance Service staff.
