|Kinder Mountain Rescue cover the whole of the Kinder Plateau.|
I'd already looked for the nearest hospital, because the helicopter had gone off Kinder Scout towards Hayfield rather than Hope/Bamford - the direction from which it came on. Because of that fact, I assumed the chap had been taken to hospital; but I wanted to see if I could find exactly what happened.
After some browsing, I found the website for the Kinder Mountain Rescue Team. Upon this website, I managed to find a brief write-up of the incident. Here it is, taken directly from the website;
"33: Callout Thursday 1st November 20
- Type – Collapsed Walker
- Location – Edale Rocks area of Plateau
- Team members – 24 KMRT plus Glossop MRT and Rescue 128 RAF Sea King
- Duration 4 Hours or 96 man hours for KMRT
I've taken this as a warning, that even if you think you know what you're doing and are confident in your abilities - something like this is never a million miles away from you. It may even happen to you. Im hoping the guy is making/has made a full recovery.
