The Team was called to a party of six walkers at the summit of Ill Crag after one of the party became ill. Due to the remote location and prevailing weather conditions, assistance from the Coastguard helicopter, Rescue 936 was gratefully received. They assisted by transporting two team members up the fell from the team base close to the location of the casualties. They then flew the party and the team members back to base. Huge thanks once again to the Rescue 936 team with some skilful flying in challenging conditions and also to Duddon and Furness MRT who had deployed into Wasdale in case the air transfer was unsuccessful.

Incident started at 18:06 and ended at 20:51 making 2.8 hrs in total. There were 3 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 223 075. Total rescuer hours: 8
