Buxton Mountain Rescue Team was called to Millers Dale to asssit the ambulance service late at night.
It was reported that a young person had collapsed on the Monsal Trail. We located a 16 year old girl from Gillingham, Kent, near to Bridge 75 and the steps into Chee Dale. She had suffered a medical collapse, and was treated on site by the ambulance service paramedics.
Neil Carruthers, Buxton Team Leader said “We provided access along the Monsal Trail enabling the ambulance to drive to the casualty site directly, and assisted the crew with the evacuation into the ambulance”.
She was then transferred to the Chesterfield Royal Hospital for further treatment.
