An injured woman was rescued from the Berwyn Mountains on New Year’s Eve.
Emergency services were called to help the woman who had hurt her leg while out walking near Llangynog at around 2.30pm on Friday (December 31).
Paramedics along with search and rescue teams had to walk a “considerable way up the hill to reach the scene”.
A North East Wales Search and Rescue spokesperson said: “We carried out a three stage rope protected lower of the stretcher to a track, where the stretcher wheel was attached to allow the casualty to be carried down to the ambulance.
“We were also assisted by a member of South Snowdonia Search and Rescue Team, the walking companion of the casualty and the local landowners who carried some kit with a quad bike.”
The mountain rescue team continues to appeal for donations to help continue the service. It costs around £25,000 to run every year, which includes fuel, vehicle repairs, protective equipment, training courses as well as equipment such as ropes and stretchers.
