The woman was stretchered down from Ingleborough to Crina Bottom

A walker was rescued from one of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks after collapsing near its summit.

The Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation was called out on Saturday to the 20-year-old woman, who was becoming hypothermic on Ingleborough.

A team spokesperson said: “On reaching the casualty, two of the team’s casualty carers administered first aid and began warming the casualty, while other team members prepared for a stretcher carry.

“The casualty was then stretchered down towards Crina Bottom Farm to drop below the cloudbase, so she could be airlifted to hospital by the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.”

The previous day, the team was called to the slopes of Ingleborough to Long Kin East where a caver was reported as stuck.

The 55-year-old man had become suspended and jammed while descending the pothole.

The team spokesperson said: “As the team’s cavers were arriving at the pot entrance, the caver emerged at the surface, having managed to free himself.”
