The 19 year old man from Aberystwyth had slipped whilst walking. With failing battery power on his mobile, the man had managed to call the coastguard on a marine VHF channel. The coastguard rescue team located and stabilised the man as the Mountain Rescue Team was contacted. A stretcher party and cas carers from the Team helped splint and load the man, and then lower him down the steep slope to waiting team vehicles.
With no ambulance immediately available, a Team member dropped the casualty at Bronglais hospital for further assessment. Everyone was back at base by 06:30 a.m.
