Call Out 24: Kippure Search 06/06/15

On Saturday the 6th of June at approximately 19.37hrs both the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team and the Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team were tasked by An Garda Siochana to help search for a teenage girl who had become separated from her family while out walking near Kippure Mountain. The girl was sighted by Mountain Rescue personnel as they made their way to Kippure. Once she joined up with MR personnel she was transported to where her family were waiting to be reunited with her and the incident was stood down.

Mountain Rescue would like to thank all agencies involved including: The Garda Air Support Unit Helicopter who assisted with the search and S.A.R.D.A (Search and Rescue Dog Association) who were placed on stand by to assist.
