Pensioner airlifted to hospital after fall on Tryfan

A man in his 70s had to be airlifted to hospital after a fall while mountain walking in Snowdonia.

The pensioner, along with his wife, was winched from the north ridge of Tryfan after falling 10ft (3.04m), hurting his pelvis.

A member of Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue helped the walker until the arrival of the Sea King helicopter crew from RAF Valley, Anglesey.

The man was taken to hospital in Bangor after the rescue on Monday, 2pm.
