Read Time:54 Second

A man died following a fall on Tryfan Mountain near Eryri, Snowdonia, in a terrible occurrence. On June 7, emergency services were called to the harrowing scene last Friday night.

A statement detailing the incidents was released by the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organization (OVMRO): “Our team was notified on Friday evening after a witness reported a fall from Tryfan’s south ridge. With assistance from Royal Air Force Mountain Rescue teams based at RAF Valley and RAF Lossiemouth, who were thankfully conducting training nearby, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency helicopter R936 was sent out.”

Tragically, despite the efforts of rescue crews, the person who was found via helicopter did not survive the fall. The victim was quickly brought down to a safe area in Cwm Tryfan by specialized operations, which included a technical rope rescue. After that, they were handed over to Coast Guard officers.

“Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of the deceased during this incredibly difficult time,” the statement said.
