An 80 year old gentleman was out walking with a group across Sharp Edge. Part way across the ridge he fell at the most difficult and exposed section. A passer by managed to reach him and begin CPR and the Great North Air Ambulance responded quickly managing to drop off their doctor close by. Unfortunately, due to his injuries, there was nothing that could be done to save him. Keswick team members responded and carried the gentleman down off the hill. Our deepest thoughts and sympathies go out to the gentleman’s family and friends.
