After training with R199 during the afternoon, the team had to request the same crew for an incident near Burnmoor Tarn. We responded to reports of an unwell person near the lodge and used our 4×4 vehicles to get as close as possible. The casualty was in a high level of pain. Our teams Casualty Carers used analgesia to make them more comfortable, but due to the nature of the medical condition, it was still unsuitable to stretcher them off of the hill due to the amount of pain the position would have caused. Because of this, R199 was requested and attended the incident, taking the casualty to hospital.

Incident started at 17:26 and ended at 22:27 making 5 hrs in total. There were 18 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY183040. Total rescuer hours: 90
