Man dies in fall from Snowdonia mountain

A MAN has died after falling from a mountain in Snowdonia. A helicopter crew from RAF Valley in Anglesey was scrambled after the reported 100ft fall on Glyder Fawr above the Ogwen Valley.

The man was flown to hospital in Bangor, North Wales, yesterday afternoon but died shortly afterwards.

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team was alerted to the fall and was also called out to a couple in their late 20s who became stranded on a walking route on Carnedd Dafydd. On Thursday, Snowdonia National Park chiefs warned people to avoid walking in the mountains in the current weather, unless they were properly prepared.
