A 10-year-old boy was airlifted to hospital by an RAF helicopter after falling 165ft down a snow-covered mountain in the Lake District.
The boy, from Preston, was climbing down a ridge at Swirral Edge on Helvellyn - Britain's third tallest mountain - when he slipped and fell approximately 165ft (50 metres).
The Great North Air Ambulance dropped its doctor and a paramedic onto the ridge, and the boy was treated for suspected head and pelvic injuries.
According to Lakeland Radio, Patterdale Mountain Rescue were called to the scene, and a SeaKing from RAF Boulmer was scrambled. It winched the boy, along with his father and a doctor, into the aircraft and flew them to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle.
According to the BBC, Swirral Edge is one of two edges enclosing the cirque of Red Tarn below the 3,117ft (950m) summit of Helvellyn.
