Elderly man rescued after suffering a seizure


Penrith Mountain Rescue Team were called out at 23.30 on the 2nd September at Lazonby after an elderly man had suffered a seizure. The call-out lasted an hour and half, and comprised of 11 team members. 

A spokesperson from PMRT said:

"The team were called out to the aid of an 80-year-old male who had suffered a seizure whilst out walking. He was discovered by his wife many hours later lying in a muddy field, having been exposed to many hours of heavy rain. 

"The casualty was suffering from hypothermia and there is no doubt that the treatment he received from local residents who went out to help, saved his life. 

"The team moved the casualty to the roadside where he was handed over to North West Ambulance Service. The team's heat warming pads and casualty bag (large furry bag) were used in the treatment.

"The casualty was taken to the Cumberland infirmary in Carlisle where he was treated for hypothermia over night."
