Incident report

Whilst providing safety cover alongside Derby MRT for the classic Four Inns Walk Buxton Mountain Rescue Team was alerted to an incident on the Chapel Gate Track in the Edale Valley.

A nineteen year old female competitor was reported to have suffered a seizure whilst climbing the track towards Rushop Edge.   Unsure of the exact location of the incident, ten members of Buxton MRT were initially dispatched to the scene, some climbing from the Edale Valley whilst others made their way down from the top.  A group from Derby MRT including a team doctor was also sent from the Walk Control point in Chapel en le Frith.

Following examination by team members, and later the doctor, the lady was carried down to the roadside where her friends and companions were able to look after her.

    As the mother of the female, I wish to say thank you for your help on Saturday. I understand everything was carried out in a very calm and efficient manner.
