Call Out 18: Camara Hill Rescue 10/04/16

At approximately 14.28hrs on Sunday the 10th of April both the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team and the Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team were tasked by An Garda Siochanna to come to the assistance of an injured Hillwalker near the summit of Camara Hill.

The Injured man was one of a party of 3 descending from Lugnaquilla when he slipped and suffered a lower leg injury. Army personnel opened barriers on the track to facilitate quick access by Mountain Rescue. Once a hill party reached the injured man he was treated by MR Medics before being stretchered off the hill. He was then placed in a stretcher capable MR 4×4 and transported to a waiting HSE Ambulance. The Ambulance crew then brought him to hospital for definitive care.


Mountain Rescue would like to thank all agencies involved including: The Defence Forces and the HSE National Ambulance Service.
