Dales rescuers called to help elderly walkers
THE Cave Rescue Organisation at Clapham was called to help two elderly walkers in separate incidents in the Dales today.
At around 12.35pm, members assisted a 76-year-old woman at the Norber Erratics, Austwick, after she suffered an angina attack.
After treatment from paramedics, the CRO crew brought her down from the fell to a waiting ambulance.
Half an hour later, the team received a report that a 74-year-old man had suffered a heart attack above the Pecca Waterfalls at Ingleton.
The man was treated by paramedics before the CRO took him off the hill in a team vehicle to a waiting ambulance in Ingleton.
An air ambulance attended both incidents but was not used.
