Incident report

Buxton team members marshalling a fell race in the Goyt Valley were alerted that a male in his late 40’s was apparently unconscious in a car at Pyms Chair.  Buxton Mobile 1 attended the scene, updated Derbyshire police directly using the Airwave radio system which the team is trialling and attempted to gain access to the vehicle which had been locked from the inside.  Upon the arrival of the ambulance, entry had to be forced and the unconscious male was transferred to the waiting ambulance for stabilisation and further treatment.
