In the afternoon of New Years Day the team was contacted by North Wales Police and the Welsh Ambulance Service with regard to a lady with a lower leg/ankle injury on Moel Famau. The team sent a small group to the location to assist. In the meantime a group of passersby had attempted to assist the casualty down. When we arrived we provided pain relief and splinting before completing the extraction to the road. The casualty was then taken to hospital by her friends. We received the following update via Twitter a couple of days later:
“This was my sister. She’s now had surgery, pins/plates inserted, and asked me to pass on her huge thanks to you for yesterday!”
We wish the casualty a speedy and complete recovery.
