Walker stretchered from Helvellyn after seizure
9:14am Monday 9th September 2013 in News
A WALKER was stretchered from a Lake District mountain after she suffered an epileptic seizure.
The 57-year-old, from Stockport, had a fit on the path above Keppel Cove on the Helvellyn range on Sunday.
Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out just before 2pm.
A passing doctor helped the woman before the team arrived.
A Patterdale MRT spokesperson said the walker had still not fully recovered when they reached her, so she was stretchered down from the fell to the team’s Land Rover.
She was then taken to its Patterdale base for further assessment by ambulance paramedics before rejoining her party for the journey home.
