Brown Tongue, Scafell Pike

We were called about a walker who was reported to have collapsed close to the stream crossing on Brown Tongue. The team mobilised quickly down the valley to help. Fortunately when we arrived, we found the walker descending slowly with help from his walking group. He had suffered a seizure and also had several other injuries due to falling over when this had happened. The team Casualty Carers fully assessed his condition before helping him the short way off the fell. He was then handed over to an ambulance crew for further medical assessment at hospital. We wish him a swift recovery.

Incident started at 16:30 and ended at 19:36 making 3.1 hrs in total. There were 17 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 191073. Total rescuer hours: 53
