Woman rescued after getting lost on Bray Head

The woman suffered no injuries in the incident.

A WOMAN IN her 20s was rescued after becoming “lost and disoriented” on Bray Head yesterday evening.

At around 5pm yesterday evening the 22-year-old woman contacted the Garda Control Centre saying that she was lost and disorientated with her surroundings on Bray Head.

Gardaí immediately contacted their colleagues at Bray Garda Station and the Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue Team. The Irish Coast Guard Rescue Team from Greystones were also involved, as were the Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue team.

Contact was maintained with the woman via her mobile phone and the Garda Air Support Unit was called for. The woman was asked to turn on a torch which she had to help the helicopter find her.

The ASU found her using their own light and remained overhead to allow the Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue Team to reach and rescue her.

The woman was taken into the care of the Mountain Rescue team, having suffered no injuries during her ordeal.
