Incident report

Buxton Edale teams in a joint snatch squad to attend a collapsed male in a steep limestone dale.

The casualty, a 63 year old man from Wakefield, was ascending a slope from Lathkill Dale with a rambling group when he collapsed. His companions provided CPR until the air ambulance arrived. As the ambulance was able to land adjacent to the site of the incident, the team was stood down on arrival.

The casualty was evacuated by Yorkshire Air Ambulance to a hospital in Sheffield.  Sadly, he did not survive.

Our condolences go to the gentleman’s friends and family.
