A man has died after falling on one of Yorkshire’s Three Peaks.

The Cave Rescue Organisation was alerted on about 7.20am Wednesday to reports of an unconscious man on Pen-y-ghent.

The 67-year-old suffered a head injury in what rescuers called a ‘significant fall’ on the rock bands near the summit of the hill.

The crew of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance flew to the scene and carried out cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the man.

A CRO spokesperson said: “Attempts by YAA paramedics and others to revive the casualty were unsuccessful.

“CRO team members used ropes to lower the casualty in a stretcher over steep ground to a place where the YAA could land. The casualty was flown down to Horton in Ribblesdale.

“The entire team send our sincerest condolences to the family of the deceased.”
