On Monday, May 20, Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team were called out by Dyfed-Powys Police to help a walker who had fallen at Sgwd yr Eira Waterfall.

The casualty’s husband had helped her out of the gorge, where she fell, but the pain in her hip required assistance from the rescue team.

Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team used what3words and PhoneFind to locate the casualty and her husband. On arrival the team assessed the woman and treated her with pain relief.

The team then helped the couple back to their vehicle where the woman was further taken to hospital.

As the team were travelling home in the evening, they received a second callout to an injured mountain bike rider at Bike Park Wales. The man had come off his bike and fallen approximately four metres down the hill, injuring his leg.

The casualty care medics worked with the bike park first responder to provide pain relief to the bike rider. The man had fractured his femur.

Mountain rescue members, along with paramedics, evacuated the casualty on a stretcher to an awaiting ambulance.

A spokesperson for Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team said: “Shortly before 11pm we were back at base and on our way home and of course we wish both of Monday’s casualties a full recovery from their injuries.”
