A weekend camping trip was cut short when one of the group’s members fell ill. The subject was a 78 year old man with apparent heart problems and medication needs. Dehydration was also a factor. Team members found the party, provided water and medical attention and stayed with the subjects through the night. At daybreak all set out together and returned safely.
