On Wednesday 29, March Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team were called out to help a female walker in the Brecon Beacons who was suffering with the effects of hypothermia near Fan Y Big.
A group who were passing by contacted Dyfed-Powys Police for help, and the police called the mountain rescue team.
Members of Royal Air Force RRC Crickhowell, who were on one of their outdoor training days, interrupted their planned walk to ensure the safe escort of the lady off Fan Y Big to the “Gap Road” then south down the Neuadd valley to meet mountain rescue team members.
Once the woman was by the response vehicle, she was checked over by casualty care medics.
After she had warmed up and given food and warm drinks, she was sent safely to her accommodation.
A spokesperson for Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team has said: “We must thank and pay tribute to the members of Royal Air Force RRC Crickhowell who were on one of their outdoor training days and without hesitation raised the alarm.
“There is little sign of a warm spring making an appearance across the mountains and we’d urge everyone heading to the tops to please be equipped, for now, ready for cold wind and rain.”
