Incident report

The snatch squad was called from the previous incident to assist in the evacuation of a 68 year old male from Nottingham. He had collapsed in Treak Cliff Cavern following a strenuous climb. He was treated on site by the ambulance service paramedics and the team doctor, then packaged and carried some 250 metres back down the twisty path and steps to the roadside. He refused hospital treatment.
