A local 19 year old male rider hit a tree at speed on a steep track at Dyfi Bike Park, Pantperthog, and sustained multiple injuries. The casualty's location was in difficult terrain and so the Team was called to assist with the extraction. Moving and packaging the casualty for transport was complicated by the nature of the injuries and significant pain levels. This, combined with difficulty of access for an ambulance, meant that support from the Coastguard helicopter, Rescue936, and their paramedics was requested. The aircraft managed to land close-by and paramedics were able to stabilize the injuries sufficiently to enable the Team to operate; using a rope system the stretcher was raised to a nearby forest track and then carried to the aircraft for transport to hospital.
Everyone was down off the hills shortly after 8:00 p.m.
