Two rescues in Wicklow
On Good Friday 18/04/14 both the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team and the Dublin and Wicklow Mountain Rescue team having come to the assistance of a 9 year old boy who had suffered a lower leg injury in Glendalough and after safely transporting him to a waiting HSE ambulance were called to a second incident at Lough Bray Lower.

Two men, both in their mid 30's, who had been paragliding in the area had collided with each other just before 4.00pm and had come down near the lake. A HSE ambulance was also tasked. Having made their way to the scene Mountain Rescue personnel assisted HSE paramedics in the treatment of the two paragliders.

One of the paragliders suffered serious injuries and was the first to be airlifted by Coast Guard helicopter Rescue 117. The remaining paraglider whose injuries while not as serious were still of concern was also airlifted. Both men were transported to hospital for definitive care.

Gardai operated a one way flow traffic system while the incident was on ongoing. Thank you to the public for their assistance in this.

The Rescue Teams were stood down at 7.03pm.
