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.
