With no previous medical history, the walker, a 41 year-old man from Sussex, had suffered a seizure whilst making the ascent, and although apparently recovered by the time assistance arrived, the medical advice was to evacuate by stretcher in case of a recurrence.
The rescue was very much a team effort in the broader sense; first on scene was a Snowdonia National Park Ranger, quickly followed by a Team Member climbing nearby. The ASART team was also assisted by colleagues from the South Snowdonia Mountain Rescue Team who were able to add some additional man-power to the stretcher carry. With both of the ASART team leaders at a meeting of Welsh Mountain Rescue Teams, the whole rescue was coordinated from the back of a conference room in Brecon.
Everyone was safely off the mountain by 1:00 p.m. and the casualty was passed on to an awaiting ambulance for further medical care.
