Earlier this afternoon the Team and North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team were requested by the North East Ambulance Service to attend an individual who had collapsed in the Yetlington area of Northumberland. Due to the conditions the helicopter was unable to fly. Consequently a vehicle, Team members and a Team Doctor were mobilised quickly.
Notwithstanding the efforts of the Paramedics and Team members, the 50 year old male died. The man was on a shoot when he suffered a cardiac arrest.
Our thoughts go out to the man’s family and friends at this difficult time.
The incident involved 14 Team members for 2 hours.
