The team and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance were called today by North Yorkshrie Police to assist a female, aged14, who had collapsed (possible seizure) on a footpath between Arncliffe to Malham tarn whilst out on a school organised Duke of Edinburgh expedition. The team helped in loading the female into the helicopter which transported her to a waiting road ambulance in Arncliffe. The team noticed that another member of the group was possibly suffering from mild hypothermia so quickly drove the girl to the same ambulance. The rest of the team were escorted by the UWFRA team to the rendevous point - The Falcon Inn, Arncliffe to meet with the group leader.
The team were alerted for a possible search of the Barden Moor area for an overdue female walker (22 years old). After unsuccesfully trying to make phone contact, her friend alerted the emergency services after she failed to show up a the agreed time and place, with additonal concerns of inadequate clothing and sustinance for a long outing. The team were stood down just as they were about to be debriefed as thankfully the female showed up at Barden Bridge. She had made a longer route around the edges of the moor, using the map boards at the end of the tracks entering the moor. She travelled via the Pinnacle, Rylestone Cross & Embsay Res, then followed the road over Black Park.
