Woman and child injured in separate Snowdonia incidents

AN INJURED woman and child were taken to hospital after two separate mountain accidents.

Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue team volunteers were called at about midday yesterday after a woman fell while out walking on Tryfan.

The 22 Squadron RAF Valley helicopter was tasked to help with the rescue operation.

A spokesman said: “The 35-year-old woman was one of a party of four walking on Tryfan when she fell.

“Mountain rescue were called and we were also asked to attend.

“The woman was taken onboard with help from our winchman.

“She was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.”

Medics said the woman was suffering from suspected spinal injuries.

Later in the afternoon, Llanberis Mountain Rescue volunteers were called to the summit of Snowdon.

A child had suffered a head injury near the top of the mountain.

Staff at the summit cafe offered assistance until mountain rescue teams reached the scene.

The child was taken down the mountain on the train to a waiting ambulance.
