The team received a request to assist the ambulance service at Springs Wood, a short distance from the base. Passers by had reported a 60 year old man who had suffered a suspected cardiac arrest while mountain biking up the trail. The team quickly deployed to the scene where the ambulance crew along with Great North Air Ambulance Service were already providing emergency medical assistance. The team helped to transfer the casualty to the waiting ambulance for transport to Cumberland Infirmary. Unfortunately despite everyone’s best efforts the man could not be resuscitated and later died in hospital. The team’s thoughts are with man’s family.
