Cross Fell rescue in blizzard conditions


Penrith Mountain Rescue Team were called out to a stranded walker on Saturday, lost in blizzard conditions on the summit of Cross Fell. The Team were deployed from two locations and battled through deep snow, very strong winds and reduced visibility to reach the casualty.

A spokesperson said:

"The Team guided the casualty safely down the mountain walking into 50 MPH headwinds. The fact that the casualty followed the Teams advice meant that he survived the extreme conditions until the Team managed to reach him.

"After the casualty was safely off the fell the Team then deployed to recover a Land Rover in deep snow and ice. Snow chains were fitted to both Land Rovers to enable extraction."

The rescue consisted of 16 team members, and took 8.5hrs to complete.
