Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT, GNAAS

On a beautiful sunny summer day a 71 year old man was walking over Walla Crag with his wife and dog. They took the steep descent path towards the lakeshore alongside Cat Ghyll between Walla Crag and Falcon Crag. The man┬ástumbled and fell from the path into the ghyll sustaining fatal injuries. Two passers by climbed down to the man and attempted to help him. Members of Keswick team arrived shortly after and despite their best efforts nothing could be done to save him. An extremely sad and unfortunate incident and our deepest thoughts and sympathy go to the man’s wife, family and friends.
