43/12 – Call out to Berwyn Mountains

The team was called by North Wales Police early on the afternoon of Saturday 20th October to assist a well equipped walker who had sustained an  injury while walking in the Berwyn Mountains.

Team members deployed to the rather remote location and at the same time the services of the RAF Search and Rescue Force were requested as it was expected they could get to the casualty more quickly than our troops on foot would achieve.

One of our team members was out for a days walking and was rather fortuitously only 2km away sat on a hill top and helped with the co-ordination.

The RAF did their usual excellent job and located the injured person and winched them off, before taking them to hospital.  Their injuries are not considered life threatening.

The team was stood down at 15:41.
