Skiddaw (36)

Callout Time: 1:30 pm
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, GNAAS, Cumbria Police

A group of family and friends were hiking to the summit of Skiddaw together when on of the party collapsed suddenly. CPR was immediately provided by members of the group, many of whom work within the emergency services and NHS. Air Ambulance arrived quickly on scene to help with resuscitation with mountain rescue also en-route to provide further assistance.  Sadly, despite the best efforts of all involved, the man could not be saved. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
