At 14:35hrs on Tuesday, September 18th The Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue Team and Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team were tasked by An Garda Síochána to assist the National Ambulance Service (NAS) with an incident on the Wicklow Way near Lough Tay.
Mountain Rescue (MR) assistance was requested to help a NAS crew to access and evacuate a walker on the Wicklow Way. An MR medic assisted a NAS advanced paramedic to treat the walker, who had sustained a head injury after a fall. The patient was then packaged into a stretcher by MR personnel and evacuated to a waiting ambulance.
The incident was stood down at 15:50hrs. We’d like to thank the NAS crew for their assistance.
