A gentleman, Chris, who had gone to take photographs of Kinder Downfall came across a lady around Cluther Rocks who was unwell and unable to continue. Chris called 999 and we were tasked to assist. He kindly stayed with the lady until we arrived. Fortunately, we were able to walk her slowly off to Broad Clough. From there, she was transported in an off road vehicle to a place of safety for further assessment and treatment.
We would like to thank Chris for dealing with this difficult situation in a very calm and competent manner. His actions may have saved the lady’s life.
