Scarr Rescue(02/06/10)

Both the Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue Team and Dublin / Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team were called out at 8.30pm this evening to 2 emergencies that occured at the same event.
During a Mountain Run two competitors suffered injuries and had to be assisted off Scarr Mountain.  One of the two women suffered a wrist injury, while the second with a lower leg injury, had to be stretchered from near the summit to an awaiting 4X4 Mountain Rescue vehicle.
At the nearest road access point the Eastern Region Health Authority ambulance was in attendance in order to transfer her to hospital.
Wicklow’s Mountain Rescue service would like to thank all who assisted including the Irish Mountain Running Association, and the ERHA.
