Mountain Rescue by Boat - a first?
A young man who was injured and in need of assistance successfully attracted the attention of mountain rescue personnel by using his torch to flash a signal for help. The Mountain Rescue members who happened to be out on a night hike in the Glendalough valley, recognised the distress signal and raised the alarm. Both the Glen of Imaal and Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Teams responded to the request for help and quickly mobilised personnel to the scene.
As the Glendalough valley is effectively cut off from landslides and subsidence following recent snow and floods, rescue medics provided emergency first aid on site and then evacuated the injured party with the assistance of the National Park rescue boat.He was delivered safely to an awaiting HSA ambulance and transported to hospital.
The call for help was raised at 2200hrs on Monday 1st and by 2400hrs the young man was safely on route to hospital.

The Rescue teams acknowledge all who assisted;

The Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team
The Dublin/Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team
The Wicklow Mountains National Park Staff
