Injured mountain biker at Llandegla

Our rather busy spell continues, with a request this afternoon to assist the Welsh Ambulance Service to deal with a mountain biker with potentially serious injures on one of the routes in Llandegla Forest.
North Wales Police officers also assisted.
The casualty was located using SARLOC and an advanced party of two NEWSAR team members went to the scene accompanied by a Paramedic and a Police Officer. After assessment by the Paramedic pain relief was given and the casualty was put into our vacuum mattress and stretcher, before other team members arrived and carried him down to a waiting ambulance.
We hope the casualty has a speedy recovery.
Thanks also to the other riders who were with him who helped us with location confirmation.
