Injured walker at Dolgoch Falls

At around 12:45 p.m. on Wed 25th Oct,  Aberdyfi Search & Rescue Team was called to assist a walker with an ankle injury at Dolgoch Falls near Tywyn.

The walker, a 71 year old man, had slipped and injured his ankle whilst out with a family group at the popular attraction. His location, some distance up the valley, meant that the ambulance service was unable to access his location.

After initial examination and treatment, Team volunteers  loaded the man onto a stretcher and transported him off the mountain, from where family members were able to drive him to hospital for further examination and treatment.

Everyone was off the hill by 3:00 p.m.
