A teenage male became separated from his family as he proceeded ahead of them while descending to Stake Pass from Mart Crag Moor. They searched the area around Stake Pass, then called the team. A search was organised and he was located coming down from Rossett Ghyll. We were assisted by Keswick MRT and Lake District Mountain Search and Rescue Dogs
The team assisted in a joint operation with Keswick and Cockermouth MRTs to rescue a man with a knee injury at Stake Pass.
He was able to walk down with assistance
Two members of a group of older walkers sustained injuries, one a dislocated shoulder and another a knee injury.
They phoned for help, but with a poor signal, it was difficult to locate them. There location was described as 'Langdale Ghyll'... When we eventually did work out where they were, it was with help from a party member who had descended and could point to the way he had come down. (It's really useful to be able to name the location of your emergency!)
Two soldiers from Catterick Camp collapsed with exposure and exhaustion during gale force winds and torrential rain. Found by a group from RAF Linton M.R.T. who alerted the team. RAF Stafford M.R.T. also assisted with the evacuation of the two casualties.
During call-out no. 7 the Team was notified of a 62 year old female from Wirral Cheshire in difficulties with damaged knee ligaments after falling on boulders. As the R.A.F. Helicopter was already in attendance they flew into Stake Pass and winched the casualty aboard and ferried her to a waiting ambulance.
A 51 year old man from Manchester collapsed whilst walking with his sons. He suffered a FATAL heart attack. The Team located the body on Mart Crag Moor and conveyed it down the fellside. A helicopter from R.A.F. Boulmer was called, but not required.
