A MAN was res­cued from Bray Head on the evening of Mon­day, May 30, fol­low­ing a fall from a bike on the Cliff Walk.

The HSE am­bu­lance ser­vice was first on the scene and paramedics and ad­vanced paramedics re­quested the help of the Coast­guard and moun­tain res­cue teams.

The in­ter-agency res­cue in­cluded mem­bers of Grey­stones Coast­guard, Glen of Imaal Moun­tain Res­cue and Dublin-Wick­low Moun­tain Res­cue as well as the Coast­guard he­li­copter.

A para­medic was winched aboard the he­li­copter to con­tinue pa­tient care en-route to hos­pi­tal.

The com­plex res­cue in­volved a high level of in­ter-agency col­lab­o­ra­tion with a num­ber of ser­vices com­ing to­gether to as­sist the pa­tient.

He was sta­bilised on scene by crews be­fore be­ing air­lifted.

The man was air­lifted to hos­pi­tal as a pre­cau­tion after he suf­fered a head in­jury on Mon­day, May 30.
