A YOUNG woman fell about 80ft at Pistyll Cain in Coed y Brenin.

The woman sustained multiple serious injuries.

This was on Monday, August 23.

South Snowdonia Search and Rescue Team wrote on Facebook on August 26: "Team members set up a rope system for safe access into the gorge for both personnel and kit to get down. Luckily a passing doctor who was in the area was on the scene immediately to assist. Multiple teams were involved in the evacuation which also needed three teams to set up a high line for winching into the helicopter.

"Huge thanks go out to the attending doctor, HM Coastguard Bristows 936, Welsh Air Ambulance, Aberdyfi Search & Rescue Team, North Wales Police."
