Incident 41/2017 – June 13th Tue. 12.24 – Path from Gordale Bridge to Cawden Flatts, Malham, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue

A walker (m,70) was reported to have collapsed on the path from Gordale Bridge to Cawden Flatts. With no phone signal, the caller returned to Malham to call for help and to collect the village defibrillator, because the patient was believed to have stopped breathing. When the first CRO members arrived, the paramedics from the North West Air Ambulance were monitoring the now-conscious patient, who was believed to have had a heart attack. The helicopter then flew him to hospital and CRO members, together with the road ambulance crew were stood down.
