Injured Walker above Tal y Llyn Pass

Shortly after 4:00 p.m. on Sunday 29th December, call handlers from Aberdyfi Search & Rescue Team were made aware of an injured walker above the Tal y Llyn pass near Dolgellau.

The injured woman, a visitor from the Netherlands, had injured her ankle whilst on a hill walk that had started in Dinas Mawddwy. She had been helped by her partner to a position close to the back road to Aberllefenni and, with a little assistance from Team volunteers, she was moved to a waiting Team vehicle and driven down off the hillside.

The casualty was then driven by her partner to hospital for further assessment.
