Two persons lost in the Clwydians

Man and woman plus three dogs benighted and unable to find the correct route down off their chosen hill in the Clwydians. Team Landrover sent to signal to them with Blue Lights to try to identify their location and full team called to base ready to search paths. Fortunately they found a farmhouse and were directed to a road where we picked them up to get them back to their vehicle.

Injured woman on Foel Fenlli

On Sunday 7th January a lady had a slip on a steep path on the side of Foel Fenlli in the Clwydian Hills.  Unfortunately she quite badly injured her lower leg and could not move.  Her well equipped party members assisted her and called out Mountain Rescue.  Our team members attended in two Landrovers and provided medical assistance.  The nature of her injury and the location meant a helicopter lift was going to be the best option for evacuation.  The Coastguard helicopter from Caernarfon attended and the casualty was winched aboard and conveyed to hospital.  We hope she is fully recovered soon.  Thanks again to her group members who did such a great job looking after her before we arrived.
