We were called by Cumbria Police about a walker who had become lost and got wet as a result of falling into a bog. It was not possible to speak to him and because of concerns over hypothermia, (even in mid-summer), a small party deployed to go to his presumed location. Thankfully this turned out to be correct, the walker was ok, and the team accompanied him back down to the valley. We are also grateful to the camper who was awakened by the walker’s whistles, and came to help.

Incident started at 00:51 and ended at 06:38 making 5.8 hrs in total. There were 5 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 215080. Total rescuer hours: 29
