A woman from Sutton was rescued in the Peak District over the weekend after collapsing while out walking
Members of Buxton Mountain Rescue Team received reports of a collapsed walker in Deepdale at around 3.55pm on Sunday August 13. Fifteen members met at While Lodge car-park at the bottom of Taddington Dale for the climb up towards Deep Dale.
East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) personnel were already with the 53-year-old woman from Sutton who was suffering from an acute medical condition. An EMAS doctor, who is also a member of Edale mountain rescue team, arrived soon after. The woman was carried by rescue team members back down to the car-park where an ambulance was waiting to convey her to a Sheffield hospital. Team members then cared for and reassured the lady’s eleven-year-old son and her dog until arrangements could be made to take them home.
