Callout Time: 6:09 pm
Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, GNAAS, Cumbria Police, NWAS

We received a report that a woman in her 70s had fallen from Surprise View which overlooks Derwentwater. Both Keswick MRT and the Great North Air Ambulance immediately deployed. A Keswick MR team member along with a GNAAS doctor were lowered from the top to the woman, whilst a second group of team members made an approach to the base of the cliff. Tragically the woman died from her injuries in the fall.
Our deepest thoughts and sympathies go to the woman’s family and friends.

18 team members – 3 hours 11 minutes
