Recovery of deceased person – Ty Mawr
The Team was back at Base following a day-long exercise in two phases, involving a lift by helicopter from HM Coastguard followed by a search of Foel Fenlli. As gear was being sorted out, we received a request from the Welsh Ambulance Service to assist at Ty Mawr Country Park with the evacuation of a man with a serious medical condition – paramedics and an air ambulance were already at the scene, but it was anticipated that there might be problems due to difficult terrain. Sadly the man did not survive, and team members assisted North Wales Police by recovering his body to a safe location. The man was a well-liked person, local to the area, and the thoughts of the Team go out to his family and many friends.
