After an unusually quit period, Western Beacons Mountain Rescue was called out twice on Friday.
Firstly they were called to Henrhyd Falls in Coelbren to rescue to causalities who had fallen. One of those that was injured was able to walk out after a bit of treatment, however the other walker was a bit more serious and needed to be stretcher to the car park where they had onward transport to the hospital.
They were assisted by Brecon Mountain Rescue Team.
The second call out came shortly aftere 9pm to late and rescue 2 people who had become stuck whilst walking their dog near Bryn in the Afan Valley.
Using phonefind technology the 2 persons were located and met by local Police officers as the team were on route.
Again great work by our amazing mountain rescue teams.
