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.”
