Father and son rescued.

A FATHER and his 11-year-old son had to be airlifted to safety after the got lost in low cloud in Snowdonia.

The walkers rang the emergency services yesterday to say they were on Crib Goch and did not want to move because of poor visibility and pouring rain.

The 40-year-old man and his son from south Wales, had set off intending to walk the Pig Track. Ian Henderson, of Llanberis Mountain Rescue team said: "They got hopelessly lost or disorientated and ended up on Crib Goch.

"They got half way along the ridge when the weather closed in and they tried to retreat and got stuck on the east ridge."

RAF Valley's Sea King rescue helicopter winched both from the mountain and delivered them to the members of the waiting Llanberis mountain rescue team. They did not require medical attention.
