Unknown Location – Mon 2nd Feb 2009 – Alert

Call came in from a local couple who live in the valley on a remote farm. Their baby needed to get to Whitehaven Hospital due to a worrying medical complaint but due to the weather (heavy snow that morning) were unable to get either their car out of the valley or an ambulance in. The team Landrover was dispatched (the team were already on standby as an ambulance support service, as were all the Lake district teams) which escorted the couple with the infant out to Gosforth and clear roads. Two team members were involved and the incident was closed by 2.00 p.m.
