Teenage hiker hit by a falling sheep

 

A 17-man rescue team was called to the scene in the Mourne Mountains of Northern Ireland after a teenager was struck by a falling sheep.

The unidentified boy was walking with a group of teenagers on Slieve Bearnagh on Friday afternoon when the sheep hit the youth after jumping from an adjacent crag, according to Metro UK.

From the Mourne Mountain Rescue Team Facebook page:

The casualty was assessed and treated for a range of potential injuries including head, neck, back, abdominal and leg injuries. When packaged, the casualty was evacuated by stretcher to track access and a team vehicle.

After a short transfer to road access, the casualty was handed over to NIAS for further treatment and the onward journey to Hospital.

Metro UK reported that the boy was transferred to Ulster Hospital and was later discharged. The rescue team reported that the sheep was uninjured and “left the area unaided.”
