Incident report

A retired 69 year old male, walking with a friend by the river between Hope and Castleton, suffered an acute collapse. 

The casualty from Cheadle Hulme was first assisted by East Midlands paramedics with heart monitoring equipment before fourteen Buxton & Edale Mountain Rescue Snatch Squad members arrived to carry him by stretcher to an ambulance waiting at the roadside.  Air-ambulances were not available so the casualty was transfered by road to a Sheffield hospital.
