56: Callout 3 November 2010
- Type- Missing Hill Walkers
- Location- Red Brook, Kinder Scout
- Time- 09.00
- Team Members- Kinder 10, Glossop 9, Buxton 7
- Duration- 3 Hours (78 manhours)
The team was called out to assist two walkers (age 58 and 68) who were exhausted and cold after spending an unplanned night on the edge path on Kinder.
Additional support was requested from our adjoining teams of Buxton and Glossop to assist in the evacuation. Fortunately a Pennine Helicopters aircraft operating in the area was contacted and was able to land and evacuate the two casualties, one of whom was suffering from the onset of hypothermia.
Both gentlemen were then escorted to our base in Hayfield, re-warmed and able to depart home without medical assistance.
