Kayak Rescue(05/02/11)

Today, Saturday 5th February at 11.30am Mountain Rescue teams in Wicklow were alerted to an emergency near the Wicklow Gap.  Swift Water experts on the Rescue teams were sent to Annalecka Brook where a Kayaker became trapped in a branch in flood waters.  Both the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mt Rescue and Dublin & Wicklow Mt Rescue teams were called to attend the incident.

The Kayaker and his paddling partners were able to self-rescue without injury, and the Rescue teams were ‘Stood down’ at 12.30pm.

Thanks to those Swift-Water Rescue personnel on both teams who attended the incident.
