A call was received on Wednesday afternoon about a walker who was suffering from a medical issue, close to Wasdale Head on the descent from Scafell Pike.
A very quick response was possible as there was a vehicle with team members already in the valley, with others responding to the full callout.
Once on scene a medical assessment was made, before packaging into a stretcher. The short journey was made to the road where a handover to a land ambulance was completed, and the team returned to base.
We hope the walker recovers well, and hope to see him back on the fells soon.

Incident started at 16:24 and ended at 19:31 making 3.1 hrs in total. There were 18 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY189077. Total rescuer hours: 56
