CALLOUT 31/23: Fatality near Llangollen
We had a second call on Wednesday night which sadly involved a fatality.
Team members, assisted by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency helicopter from Caernarfon, responded to reports of a man who had suffered serious injuries as a result of a fall from height while climbing near Llangollen.
Welsh Ambulance Service paramedics were first to the scene. Unfortunately the casualty could not be saved.
Team members ensured everyone was safely escorted from the site and used a rope rescue system to lower the casualty back to the road for handover to the Ambulance.
We wish to recognise the efforts of everyone, not least the other climbers present, in their efforts to try to save his life.
Our condolences go out to the family and friends of the casualty.
