Walker dies after falling on Snowdon


A man has died after falling on Wales's highest mountain yesterday.

BBC News reports that he was found by other ramblers on a 762m ridge on Snowdon, and his body was recovered by a RAF search and rescue team from nearby Anglesey.

According to ITV, authorities are not treating his death as suspicious and enquiries are underway to establish his identity.

The Daily Mail reports that the man, who was in his 20s, was found close to a scrambling route known as Parson's Nose.

The same search and rescue team was also involved in the rescue of a paraglider, who fell near the Horseshoe Pass at Llantysilio, Denbighshire.

Sergeant Dickie Myers of RAF Valley told the Daily Mail that the paraglider, from Mold in Flintshire, had fallen about 12m.

He said: "He took quite a heavy fall and suffered a serious back injury. We put him in a full stretcher and transferred him to hospital in Wrexham."
