Incident 56/2016 – Jul. 23rd Sat. 20.26 – Sulber Nick, Ingleborough, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue.

A walker (f,40) was reported by a fellow walker to be unable to walk further, having nearly completed the 3 Peaks Challenge. A CRO vehicle with 2 team members went to the location given at Sulber Nick crossroads, and found the walker to be tired and with extremely painful knees. As the casualty was being put in the vehicle, a second walker (m,48) was found nearby, who was similarly incapacitated.

As a result, both walkers (and the 2 individuals who had stayed to help them) were taken in CRO3 down to Horton in Ribblesdale where they were handed over to waiting friends/relatives.
