Incident report

The second call was received at 00:32. Snow was lying to a good depth and had been drifting across the narrow lanes making access difficult. Team members attended a remote cottage in the same area as the previous call, using the Hilux (Mobile 1) and Mobile 4 as well as on foot, following some of the routes as per the previous call.

The occupant was found on the floor of his home had been there for several hours and was unable to get up. After a thorough examination, he was found to be cold but otherwise ok. He was assisted to his feet and given warm food.

The team stood down at about 5am.

It’s been a busy weekend for several mountain rescue teams from around the country.

We’d like to thank the dedication for helping others that all of our volunteer team members show.
