Callout 28/12/21

Just after 3pm yesterday afternoon the team were contacted by Gwent Police asking for our assistance with an incident on Sugarloaf Mountain, Monmouthshire. While out doing an organised group walk, a lady had slipped on the approach to the summit, resulting in head, chest and wrist injuries. The group were well prepared for the weather conditions, giving initial first aid and shelter, however with the low cloud and rain everyone was fast getting cold. The team were quickly mobilised and on scene, with team medics giving treatment and pain relief to the lady. Once she had been made comfortable and warmed up, the casualty was evacuated via stretcher and a rope system down to the main car park. She was then handed over to our colleagues in the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust for onward travel to hospital.We wish the lady a full and speedy recovery.
