Incident report


A joint Known Location Incident with Edale Mountain Rescue Team.

We were called to assist Edale MRT who were responding to a request from East Midlands Ambulance Service to a mountain biker who was reported to have collapsed near to Win Hill.

It became clear this was a serious incident, and that the casualty was receiving CPR from fellow riders. team members from Edale MRT, Buxton MRT and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance all responded rapidly. However, despite the prolonged efforts of all those on scene, the rider could not be resuscitated.

Our thoughts go out to the rider’s family and friends at this tragic time.
