Buxton Mountain Rescue Team called to assist Edale M.R.T. responding to a report of a collapsed walker in Hollin Clough on the east side of the Derwent Valley.
The 69 year old man from Lytham St Anns had started to feel unwell whilst walking up the valley with his family and finally became unable to continue. A family member returned to Fairholmes Information Centre to raise the alarm and East Midlands Ambulance Service in turn requested assistance from mountain rescue.
Edale M.R.T. members were first to arrive to assist the ambulance crew already on scene. Buxton members arrived soon after and, following treatment, the casualty was placed on a stretcher to be carried down to the ambulance waiting in the valley bottom.
