Search team helps Injured walker

North East Wales Search and Rescue (NEWSAR) was called by North Wales Police early yesterday (Saturday) afternoon to assist a well-equipped walker who had sustained an injury while walking in the Berwyn Mountains.

Team members deployed to the rather remote location and at the same time the services of the RAF Search and Rescue Force were requested as it was expected they could get to the casualty more quickly than NEWSAR volunteers on foot would achieve.

One of our team members was out for a day’s walking and was luckily only 2km away on a hill top when he was contacted to help co-ordinate the operation.

A statement from NEWSAR said: “The RAF did their usual excellent job and located the injured person and winched them off, before taking them to hospital.

“Their injuries are not considered life threatening.

“The team was stood down at 3.41pm.”
