A male walker had been reported collapsed on the footpath between Edale and Upper Booth. He was suffering acute abominal pain and was being cared for by 2 passing walkers.

The casaualty, a 62 year old man from Bramcote, Nottingham was treated on site by the ambulance service and aircrew paramedics.

The Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance had landed nearby, however the casualty’s condition precluded an air lift and so he was placed on a mountain Rescue stretcher and carried to a waiting land ambulance at a nearby farm and transferred to hospital.
