Injured walker at Pystyll Rhaeadr

Dyfed Powys Police requested our assistance with a report of a casualty with a lower leg injury somewhere near the top of the Pystyll Rhaeadr waterfall.  This area has very limited mobile phone coverage and another member of the party had been forced to walk all the way down to reach a farmhouse to raise the alarm.  Due to the remote location and the unknown nature of the casualties condition we requested the assistance from the Coastguard Helicopter Rescue service.  Rescue 936 was tasked and was able to land close by to the site and evacuate the casualty to hospital.  Our team members who were on the way by land were then stood down.  We’d also like to thank the local farmer who gave assistance providing information and assisting the casualty party.
