Incident 98/2003

On Boxing day, whilst the team were out in the area, we were alerted to an incident in the early afternoon, involving a collapsed person at the summit of Rivington Pike.
A 61 year old lady had collapsed, with shortness of breath and dizziness. The windy conditions and rain on the summit meant we had to protect the casualty against the elements, and we also administered oxygen, whilst we waited for Helimed 08 to arrive.
She was taken to the Royal Bolton Hospital in the air ambulance (along with our team leader, who also managed to skive a lift!)
