Wednesday 19th July 1200 noon.
We were asked by Yorkshire Ambulance Service to help with a 79 year old Darlington man who had collapsed whilst cycling with a friend near Arden Hall, near Helmsley.
Fourteen team members responded to the callout and were on route when we were informed by ambulance paramedics at the scene that the gentleman had unfortunately died. Most of our team then stood down apart from one member who stayed to liaise with the ambulance crew and assist with the recovery of the man to the waiting ambulance.
Our thoughts are with the man’s family and friends at this difficult time.
Applications can be made to join the team in a support role (Operational Support) or as a hill going (Search and Rescue) member.
Applications for either role can be made at any time. Intakes for Operational Support members occur at various times of the year. There is one annual intake for Search and Rescue normally each September.Join Now
