The man was reported to have fallen from rocks on the top of a hill, sustaining a significant head injury which left him unconscious for 10 minutes, and also a suspected broken leg. The Team was put on standby but given the seriousness of the injuries and the time it would take the Team to assemble at the location, the possibility of air-evacuation was investigated.
The scene was attended by the air ambulance and a Dyfed-Powys Police support helicopter, but with neither craft having winching capability, and the casualty in a difficult to reach position, the assistance of the RAF 122 Sea-King was sought.
The Sea King was delayed through operational reasons, but still able to attend quicker than the volunteers of ASART would have been able to reach the scene. At around 8:00 p.m. the man was winched into Rescue 122 and given the potential nature of his injuries, was transferred to hospital in Stoke. The Team was stood-down once he was aboard the aircraft.
