Hypothermia man rescued in Lake District
Bookmark and Share
Waterproofs may have helped prevent a walker from suffering an incidence of hypothermia in the Lake District at the weekend, which lead to emergency services being called out.

The individual was rescued from beside the banks of School Knott Tarn near Bowness-on-Windermere at the weekend, after he called emergency services.

Help arrived from North West Ambulance Service and Kendal Mountain Rescue Team, who were able to take him to safety.

The walker was soaking wet, which had triggered the case of hypothermia.

With the recent warm and dry spell being broken by rain across the north of England, those heading for the outdoors may be well advised to be prepared for all weathers.

School Knott Tarn is a small, elongated stretch of water situated in relatively low-lying countryside, which indicates it is not just on the mountains where appropriate clothing is needed to avoid a hypothermia risk when it gets wet.
