Catbells (54)



A couple had taken the ferry over to Hawse End from Keswick and walked up Catbells. On the way down, the lady became exhausted, felt faint and nauseous and could not continue. It was a very hot day (approx 28 degrees). Two vehicles of team members headed up to Gutherscale car park and found the casualty just 500m up the path. She was suffering from heat exhaustion so was cooled with water and given sodium chloride IV. She was then stretchered down to Gutherscale car park where an ambulance arrived 20 mins later to transport to Carlisle.

13 team members – 1 hour 35 minutes
