Both Edale and Buxton Mountain Rescue Teams were called to Cressbrook on Thursday afternoon.
A 62 year old male, walking with his wife in Cressbrook Dale, had collapsed on a very wet and muddy path. He was treated on site for a medical emergency by ambulance service paramedics.
Following on-site treatment, he was placed into a casualty bag, loaded onto our lightweight Titan stretcher, and then carried nearly half a kilometre by mountain rescue personnel to the tarmac track where he was transferred into the waiting ambulance for onward transport to hospital.
