A man was taken to hospital after suffering a seizure while camping in Penmaenmawr. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Mountain rescuers were called out on Wednesday when one of a group of “three local lads” who were camping along the coastal path suffered a seizure and his friends called for an ambulance. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Due to the location of the group, the ambulance service asked the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation to attend. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Team members said: “Locating the casualties proved difficult as the W3W (what3words address) provided was not accurate and the casualties phones went straight to answerphone so Phonefind couldn’t be used. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

“Fortunately, after speaking to some locals and the farmer, team members were able to find the group and start to administer first aid. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

“Now with an accurate location a team vehicle was able to drive directly to site and extract the casualty and take him to Ysbyty Gwynedd for further care.” ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​
