An 18 year old got into difficulties whilst swimming across Otterbield Bay on Derwentwater. He decided to return to shore and once on land he was reported as having difficulty moving. A team returning from a previous incident were re-directed to the scene whilst at the same time a rescue boat from Derwentwater Marina was deployed. The team found him to be in good spirits, alert with no difficulty breathing. Initially he was cold but soon warmed up. The team was able to stand down an ambulance and the casualty made his own way to his campsite.
