Woman rescued from rocks in Colwyn Bay

A woman was winched to safety after falling on to rocks in Colwyn Bay yesterday afternoon. Holyhead Coastguard says they received a call from the ambulance service at around 4pm to say a woman had fallen 15 feet on to rocks and was complaining of neck and back pain.

The ambulance crew were unable to reach her and so a Sea King helicopter from RAF Valley was called to assist. The woman was winched from the rocks and then taken to hospital by ambulance.

RAF Valley crews also airlifted a 50-year-old man from the Halfway House on Snowdon last night after he fell and broke his ankle.
