In the early hours of Tuesday, we responded to a request from Derbyshire Constabulary concerning a stranded camper. The individual’s family had alerted us to his distress due to a medical episode, rendering him uncontactable.
Given the limited information about his whereabouts, our teams were dispatched to potential locations.
Concurrently, we worked diligently to establish communication and were relieved when the patient regained consciousness and responded to our calls. This crucial connection allowed us to pinpoint his precise location using his mobile phone. Remarkably, he had been unconscious for nearly 4 hours.
Upon arrival, our dedicated team assessed the situation, providing the necessary care and support. After some time, the individual, with assistance, managed to walk to the awaiting East Midlands Ambulance Service crew.
We were able to stand down our team members just after 4 a.m.
