Malvern Hills Rescue

Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service (HWFRS) was alerted to the incident at 8pm and one crew from Malvern fire station attended, taking along an off-road Argocat vehicle to help locate the girl who was walking on North Hill with a group from the Malvern Outdoor Education Centre when she became unwell.

Watch Commander Saul Bolton from HWFRS explained: "Our local knowledge of the hills helped us locate the girl more quickly. Two firefighters set off on foot along a walking route known to be used by staff at the Outdoor Centre for their night time walks and they were able to reach the girl and give her medical attention while the fire crew brought paramedics to the scene in the Argocat."

Once in the care of paramedics, the girl was then transported in the off-road vehicle off the hills and taken by ambulance to hospital for precautionary checks.

The rescue was completed by 8.50pm.
