The Team were tasked by Clifden Gardai on Thursday 28th of August at 21:50 to respond to reports of a missing fisherman in the Maum Valley. The Team arrived to Kilmeelicklin and joined up with Westport and Cleggan Coast Guard units for a multi-agency rescue. Search parties located the missing person after an intensive search of the west bank of Joyces River navigating through forest, bog and scrubland. The casualty was examined and insulated while a Coast Guard helicopter arrived on scene to investigate the potential of an extraction. However, the weather conditions were treacherous and a second party accessed the site through forestry roads to extract the casualty to roadside where a HSE ambulance assessed the casualty. The Team then stood down at 7:00 am. The Team would like to thank Clifden Gardai, Westport and Cleggan Coast Guard Units, Rescue 118 and the HSE Ambulance crew.
