At approximately 12.58hrs on Tuesday the 8th of September both the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team and the Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team were tasked by An Garda Siochana to come to the aid of a teenage girl who had suffered a lower leg injury while out walking with a youth group on the Spinc. Once mountain rescue medic’s had treated her for her injury she was helped into a stretcher. MR personnel then carried her down to the miners village. At this point she was placed in an MR 4×4 which drove her out to where her mom was waiting and from there she continued on to hospital for further care.
Mountain Rescue would like to thank all agencies involved including: Wicklow Mountains National Park Staff.
