Incident Report #49 2001

A 50-year-old man walked over from Borrowdale to Langdale to meet some friends. He was reported to have consumed a substantial amount of alcohol. At 5pm he declined an offer of a lift back to Borrowdale from his friends and set off to walk. He was reported overdue at his accommodation in Borrowdale. He was located in Mickleden with a head injury, hypothermia (32˚c) and multiple bruises at 23.45 by an advanced group of rescuers as the team was assembling at base. He wasn't able to account for the missing time very effectively. It was a cold, wet night with occasional snow showers. He can probably consider himself very lucky and a little foolish.
