Man suffering from hypothermia rescued


Penrith and Kirkby Stephen Mountain Rescue Teams were called out on 27th October to Cross Fell, to assist a 57 year old male who was suffering from hypothermia.

The incident comprised 26 team members and took 5.5 hours to complete. 

A spokesperson from PMRT said: "The Team were called to assist a 57-year-old male who was suffering from hypothermia near the summit of Cross Fell. 

"His adult son was with him and had called 999. Low cloud and driving rain created a rapidly deteriorating situation.

"The Team deployed from Kirkland and Garrigill. A Land Rover drove along the track to Greg's Hut to help with evacuation. Given the concern that we may have been faced with two hypothermic casualties, Kirkby Stephen MRT were called in to assist with the rescue. The remote location would have meant a long stretcher carry in very poor ground conditions, so a Coast Guard Maritime Search and Rescue helicopter was requested. 

"Thankfully the cloud cleared from Cross Fell summit and the helicopter was able to access the casualties who were being treated by Penrith Team members. The older male was airlifted to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle. 

"A big thank you to Kirkby Stephen MRT and the Coastguard helicopter for their assistance."
