Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team endured a busy weekend full of callouts.

On Friday, May 17 at midday, the team were called out to the upper region of the Dyffryn Crawnon valley where a mountain bike rider had fallen approximately ten feet onto rocks and was unable to move.

The Rescue Team entered the area through the Trefil Quarry and asked for help from Brecon Mountain Rescue Team.

The casualty’s injured knee was treated by the team before she was carried on a stretcher and taken to an awaiting Welsh Ambulance Service Trust ambulance.

Central Beacons MRT were called out to another incident the following day involving a mountain bike rider. They were requested to assist WAST Paramedics and First Responders at Bike Park Wales who’d treated a rider with his femur injury and requested the team’s assistance.

They attended to another callout on Sunday, May 19 at Pen Pych Mountain above Treherbert, Rhondda for a report of a stranded person on rocks. With the National Police Air Service (NPAS) tasked, the aircraft crew were able to fully search the area and stood down the rescue team after the aircraft crew confirmed the whole area clear.

Later on Sunday at 7pm, the team had a fourth callout of the weekend at Mynydd Y Glyn above Porth, Rhondda to rescue a vulnerable person who’d got into difficulties while out for a walk.

Once plenty of reassurance and support had been provided to him, team members were able to carefully escort him off the mountain and returned him to safety.

A spokesperson for the team said: “We send our best wishes to all the persons we helped this weekend and we hope they recover quickly from the injuries they sustained.”
