The man, in his 50's, slipped near summit of Aran Fawddwy and strained a muscle in his leg. He had subsequently tried to make his own way off the mountain but, being unable to load bear on the leg, he quickly realised that he needed assistance.
The team was called-out with a plan to drive as high as possible and deploy from the top of the nearby forestry block. A request was also placed for assistance from Coastguard helicopter R936. As the team was assembling at the foot of the mountain, R936 was able to collect the casualty and downloaded him to a nearby landing site to be met by Team personnel. The man was transported to meet his wife who was waiting to drive him onwards for hospital based assessment and treatment.
