Conwy Mountain

1 person: walking

6 members attended
A female walker, in a large group, slipped on the steep hillside and injured her leg. An ambulance crew were sent to the scene and they requested MRT back-up. As team members were making their way to the incident site a stand-down message was given as the air ambulance had landed close to the casualty. Subsequently, the air ambulance was unable to assist and 22 Squadron were then tasked, winched her aboard and flew her to Ysbyty Gwynedd for treatment.

Aber Falls

1 person: Walking

10 members attended
A lady slipped on the steps leading to the footbridge and injured her back. WAST deployed a paramedic in an RRV but asked for MRT back-up as they were unsure how far from vehicle access she was. Luckily a warden was able to unlock the gate for the paramedic so he was on scene and had walked the lady to his vehicle before the first MRT vehicle arrived. The team were stood down.

There have been 2 incidents involving 2 people so far this year.
