Call Out 29: Djouce Rescue 27/06/15


At approximately 4.55pm on June 27th the Gardai tasked the Glen Of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team and Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team to go to the aid of a young woman who had become unwell while hiking in Wicklow.

The woman in her twenties had been walking on Djouce mountain when she became ill and a friend called for assistance.

A rendezvous point was established and Rescue Base was set up on the Long Hill Road before hill parties could be sent out to find the young hiker. There was an excellent response from mountain rescue and an MR Advanced Paramedic assessed the girl on scene before she was evacuated by Landrover to local accommodation.

The incident was stood down at 18:45.

Thank you to all who responded.
