A male was located suffering from a shoulder injury. Investigation also revealed atrial fibrillation as well, so along with Kendal MRT, a coastguard helicopter was requested to speed evacuation
The team was called to a male who was reported as having collapsed on Gibson Knott. We requeste air ambulance to attend. Unfortunately the man was confirmed to have died at the scene, depsite the efforts of bystanders who had administered CPR
A woman was descending from Alcock Tarn when she slipped and sustained a suspected fracture/dislocation of her shoulder.
She was treated by team members and evacuated to Ambleside for ongoing transport to hospital

Two women reported themselves benighted. We located them and escorted back to civilisation.
We were assisted by Kendal MRT on this one, being short of members ourselves due to a prior engagement in Langdale.
For clarity's sake, it's unlikely we'd recommend Burberry macs, Sketchers trainers or Gucci bags for Lakes hillwalking
A female sustained an ankle injury while descending Rossett Ghyll. She was treated by team members and evacuated by stretcher to the valley for onward transport to hospital.
A man sustained a serious ankle fracture/dislocation. He was treated by team members, but the need for ongoing manual traction applied to the ankle in order to maintain the blood supply to his foot meant that a stretcher evacuation was not the best option. A Coastguard helicopter was requested and was able to attend and winch the man and fly him to hospital
