A heart attack may have caused a 56 year old man from Liverpool to collapse. The team and Kendal MRT responded. Teams and doctor tried in vain to keep him alive after he suffered a second attack. The man died |usl before a helicopter from RAF Boulmer arrived. Everyone airlifted to Ambleside.
Sometimes you take people's word for things and other times you have reason to distrust them. A man reported his friend as having sustained a suspected fractured ankle near the summit of Fairfield. In fact just a few hundred metres south of the summit. Maybe it was that the man didn't have a map, or maybe it was the description of a location near a wall, but something made us doubtful that he knew what he was talking about. We located them just below the summit of High Pike and the injured man was treated by team members.
