Man passes away on Scafell Pike


Mountain Rescue Teams were called out in a multi agency operation to a medical emergency on Ill Crag, Scafell Pike, on Monday 31 Aug. Sadly, the individual requiring treatment passed away. 

The call out comprised 21 Wasdale MRT members and 10 Duddon & Furness MRT. Other agencies involved were, Cumbria Police, North West Air Ambulance, 2 x Coastguard helicopters.

A spokesperson from Wasdale MRT said:

"The team were called about a male walker who was unwell on the summit ridge between Scafell Pike and Great End.

"A coastguard helicopter was en route but was stood down as North West Air Ambulance attended.

"Members of the public, a family member and the air crew did their utmost to help the gentleman but sadly to no avail and he passed away. The Air Ambulance was then called away to another incident.

"Wasdale and Duddon & Furness team members made their way up the fell to bring the gentleman back down to Wasdale. A second coastguard helicopter was requested to assist as the carry from that location would have been very long and difficult. They were able to complete the task, with assistance from some team members. Many thanks to all involved for their help. 

"The team would like to express their condolences to the family."
