The woman was carried to Braithwaite Wife Hole from Simon Fell in the background

A walker on a charity challenge was rescued by a member of the public who found her collapsed on a Yorkshire Dales fell.

The 22-year-old woman was taking part in a charity walk in the Yorkshire Three Peaks area today when she became hypothermic on Simon Fell, a neighbouring hill to Ingleborough.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation, which later went to the woman’s aid, said the walk was diverted up Park Fell and on to Ingleborough because of weather conditions.

A CRO spokesperson said: “A member of the public came across her and carried her down off the ridge to near Braithwaite Wife Hole where he stopped and took shelter.”

The rescue team was called out about 3.15pm.

The spokesperson said: “CRO transported the casualty down to the Hill Inn in a team vehicle and, following examination by a paramedic, on to Ingleton to await an ambulance.”
