In the lower reaches of the Langstrath Valley an elderly gentleman slipped and fell bashing his head resulting in a lot of blood. A member of their party ran down to the Langstrath Hotel to call for an ambulance. NWAS called for Mountain Rescue assistance. Meantime the informant then returned to the casualty meaning that no further information could be gleaned. Team members including two medics attended, they did an assessment of the casualty before escorting the man and his companions back down to the Landrover from where the party were taken back to their car to allow them to go to hospital for treatment.
