INCIDENT 77/2019 – Aug 31st. Sat. 09.30hrs – Near summit of Pen y ghent, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue

A walker (m, 31) was reported to be having a fit, then breathing but unconscious, just above the upper tier of rocks on the ascent of Pen y ghent. When he regained consciousness, his companions and a passing doctor moved him to the shelter of the ridge wall as the weather was a bit wild.  Team members assembled near Dale Head, as the air ambulance circled overhead. With the cloud base just above the summit, paramedics assessed  the patient, but asked the team to keep moving forward, in case the cloud lowered further. The patient was put into the YAA helicopter, without CRO assistance, and flown to hospital.
