In the second call of the afternoon a report was received from Cumbria Police about a walker who had collapsed and was not responsive.
As some team members were in base assembling for the first callout, a team vehicle was despatched within three minutes of the call. Swift progress was made up the valley, however whilst en-route better news was received that the walker had recovered significantly and was now conscious and breathing. Once on scene the casualty carers performed further assessment and provided some treatment to help her recover further. After this she was able to walk slowly down into the valley for further observation by the awaiting land ambulance. We wish her a swift recovery.

Incident started at 13:55 and ended at 15:55 making 2 hrs in total. There were 9 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY195074. Total rescuer hours: 18
