On Friday the 12th of June at approximately 16.00hrs An Garda Siochana tasked both the Glen Of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team and the Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team to come to the aid of a mountain biker who had a suspected broken collar bone.
While MR personnel were making their way to Three Rock to locate the man a HSE ambulance was also dispatched to help evacuate the 38yr old casualty.
Communications can be difficult in the area but mountain rescuers located the man who was being assisted down to a larger track by a friend. The injured biker was treated by MR and transported a short distance to the waiting ambulance which then transported him to hospital for further treatment.
A quick response and proximity to tracks meant the incident was stood down in under an hour!
Mountain Rescue would like to thank all agencies involved including: The HSE Ambulance Service
