Team members from the mountain rescue team made their way to their base while others headed to the scene and were able to provide assistance in getting NWAS crew to the injured teenager with additional equipment to splint the limb. They were then able to transport the casualty to the awaiting ambulance and remain with them to ensure no further issues on the snow and sleet covered minor roads.

On the way back to their base the team also assisted a number of other vehicles on the roads.
