On Tuesday the 29th of June at approx 15.05hrs both the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team and the Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team were tasked by the HSE to come to the assistance of a HSE Ambulance crew who were treating a young boy for a lower leg injury in the vicinity of the Great Sugarloaf. The boy had been out with a youth group when the injury occurred. Mountain Rescue personnel helped stretcher the boy to the waiting Ambulance. At this point he was transferred to hospital for definitive care.
