Spinc Rescue(28/05/12)
At approximately 12.30 today the Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team and the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue team received a request from the Gardaí to assist three students who were part of a large school group enjoying the fine weather in Wicklow’s mountains.
The group, all of whom were in their early teens, were hiking around the Glendalough valley accompanied by a large group of teachers. Unfortunately three of the teenagers sustained lower leg injuries in separate accidents on the rough terrain approaching the Glenealo bridge at the back of the Glendalough valley. One suffered a bad laceration to the leg whilst the other two had injuries which suggested a broken or badly sprained ankle. The injured students, one male and two female, were unable to continue by themselves.Due to the number and age of the casualties it was decided to request the assistance of the Irish Coastguard helicopter to evacuate them to safety. Fortunately the helicopter was available and arrived on the scene just after 14.00.
