Today Friday 13th May a 65-year old man was stretchered from the Lugduff Spinc mountain trail. At about 12.30pm he sustained a lower leg injury and had to seek assistance to return to the valley. Both Mountan Rescue Teams in Wicklow attended the scene and helped in carrying the hillwalker approximately 2km down a very rough mountain trail.
Interestingly the man used his phone to take a photo of his GPS (Global Positioning System) screen to send his location coordinates via SMS to the Rescue Services.This is the first time that someone has used this particular method to alert us of their location.
