The Team was contacted by North West Ambulance Service regarding a man who had been taken unwell while walking with family near Balla Wray. Given the casualty's previous medical history the first vehicle set off quite quickly and met the ambulance at the end of the bridleway the man was walking on. Two members who lived nearby had already made their way to the scene and met the casualty party just as the first Land Rover full of people and equipment together with the NWAS personnel had left to walk up the bridleway.

The man was assessed by the NWAS crew  and the decision was taken to stretcher the man up to a team vehicle which had been brought in via Basecamp, in preference to a very difficult and slippery route back down. The man was then transferred to the NWAS Ambulance and taken to Westmorland General Hospital for further investigations and treatment.

In all 10 members of the Team attended and the incident lasted approximately 2 1/2 hours
