We were called at 14:55 with a report of a collapsed male above Tunstead Clough Farm. Two hill parties were sent urgently. Helimed and an EMAS land crew were already on scene when we arrived. They provided advanced care, but sadly the casualty was pronounced dead at the scene. We were asked to recover the casualty to the waiting land ambulance at the road head.
This was our first test of the significant changes we have made to our operating procedures because of coronavirus and a challenge because of the sad outcome.
Our thoughts are with the casualty’s family and friends.
