A 34 year man had set off around 6am from his guesthouse in Keswick for an early morning walk up Latrigg. He blacked out on the zigzags up to the summit and woke unaware of how long he had been unconscious. The team were called out and our Landrover managed to get to within 50m of the casualty. He was assessed and apart from some bruising to his eye, seemed to have recovered well. To be safe, the team decided to stretcher him to Gale road and met the NWAS ambulance there where we handed him over to their paramedic.
