Call Out 32: On Sunday the 5th of July, at approximately 16:15hrs both the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team and the Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team were tasked by the Coastguard to help locate a young hiker who was lost in the Glenasmole area of the Dublin Mountains.
Mountain Rescue Personnel were able to make direct contact with the teenage hiker to establish his well being and to get a better fix on his position. SARLOC was used to establish the youth’s position so as MR personnel could get to him and escort him off the hill. Arrangements were made for him to be reunited with his family.
Mountain Rescue would like to thank all agencies involved.
