Incident report

Not a team call-out in the traditional sense.

A Buxton team member became aware through personal connections that a man, previously reported missing from another area, may be on Higger Tor, near Hathersage.

The police were informed and a Buxton Deputy Team Leader contacted Edale Mountain Rescue Team, within whose area Higger Tor is situated, so preparations for a search could be started.  In the meantime the Buxton member made his own way to Higger Tor and safely located the man.   After being escorted from the hillside the man was assessed by an Edale MRT doctor before he was taken to hospital by family members.
