Incident report

cavedale June 2015 webBuxton Mountain Rescue Team called as part of the Joint Team Snatch Squad incident to a 28 year old male who had suffered a medical collapse in Cavedale, Castleton.

The casualty was initially treated by team members and later by paramedics from the Derbyshire, Leicester and Rutland Air Ambulance which landed a short distance away.   The nature of the casualty’s condition indicated that transport to hospital would be best by road ambulance so he was carried on a mountain rescue stretcher down the dale into Castleton.  He was then taken to a Stockport hospital for further observation and treatment.
