Two men have been airlifted from Snowdon and taken to hospital in separate incidents.
In the first, an RAF Sea King helicopter winched a 20-year-old man onboard after complaining of chest pains.
He was airlifted shortly after 16:00 BST on Wednesday on the Ranger Path.
The helicopter then flew to where the Pyg and Miners tracks meet on the mountain and picked up a man, also in his 20s, with a broken ankle.
They were both taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd hospital in Bangor.
