Assistance to Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation

Our neighbouring team, Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation, requested our assistance with what was shaping up to be a long and protracted stretcher carry on the Carneddau.  The casualty was a man suffering from what was potentially a serious medical condition – a helicopter evacuation was the preferred option but low cloud ruled this out.  ‘Oggi’ team started a difficult descent towards the cloud base, and in the meantime NEWSAR members made their way from our base near Mold to ‘Oggi’ Base.  Eventually the stretcher and casualty reached a location where the HM Coastguard helicopter could complete the evacuation and NEWSAR members were stood down.  We all wish the casualty a speedy recovery.
