Hip Injury at Dolgoch Falls

Shortly before 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday 17th September, Aberdyfi Search & Rescue Team received a request to assist a Welsh Ambulance Service Trust (WAST) crew with an injured woman at Dolgoch Falls near Tywyn.

The 62 year old, from Wrexham, was walking with her husband at the popular beauty spot when she slipped and fell on a rocky path midway up the falls. Her husband raised the alarm and she was initially attended by a WAST paramedic, while Team volunteers assembled the equipment required to remove her from the scene.

Using a wheeled stretcher, Team members maneuvered the woman down the difficult ground to the waiting ambulance for transport to hospital based care.
