A walker was airlifted from a Snowdonia mountain after suffering injuries in a 6m (20ft) fall.
The man slipped and tumbled while coming down the path below the Devil’s Kitchen on Glyder Fawr yesterday.
The walker suffered injuries to his head, chest and arm in the fall. His wife, who was walking with him, rang for help and Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation was alerted at 11.30am.
When team members reached the scene and assessed the man’s injuries, they called for the help of a Sea King helicopter from RAF Valley from Anglesey.
The helicopter crew winched the man from the site and airlifted him to hospital.
Ogwen Valley MRO walked down to the valley with the man’s wife.
The 4½-hour rescue involved 11 volunteer team members and was the OVMRO’s 89th of the year.
