I was contacted by the PDMRO Duty Controller concerning a 75 year old male walker who was feeling unwell. His party’s location was confirmed as Pym Chair using the phonefind technology.
As it was the holiday period and working hours, the number of volunteers available were limited and so Buxton MRT were called to assist in case the walker needed carrying off by stretcher.
After our fast hill party located and treated the gentleman, he was able to be walked off to Edale Cross, from where they were brought down to our base in the team Land Rovers.
