A call came in from Cumbria Police about a male feeling unwell near Scar Lathing, upper Eskdale.
Because of the nature of the medical condition, remote location and low number of available team members the Coastguard helicopter Rescue 936 kindly assisted, a big thanks for this! This saved us having to call other teams out at such a busy time. The gent was found by Jess and her handler as the helicopter arrived in the area. After a medical assessment by the aircraft Paramedic the casualty was flown to the bottom of Hardknott Pass to be taken to hospital by his friends. We hope the gent has a speedy recovery.
Incident started at 00:43 and ended at 05:46 making 5.1 hrs in total. There were 4 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 225049. Total rescuer hours: 20
