Callouts 2008

Brendon Two Gates, Exmoor, Somerset

A group of four girls on a Bronze Duke of Edinburgh's Award Expedition reported that one of their party was ill, darkness was falling and they did not know their exact location.  The weather had been wet all weekend. 

The Police helicopter located the group around a mile east of the road on Lannacombe Hill. The team administered First Aid to one of the girls, who was then evacuated with the help of the Devon and Somerset Fire & Rescue Service by stretcher and taken to hospital.  The other three girls were escorted off the moor.
