Waterfall plunge man flown to hospital by air ambulance

A walker has been airlifted to hospital with chest and possible spinal injuries after falling from a Cumbrian waterfall.

The North West Ambulance Service alerted Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team at 1.42pm today that the man had fallen from above Aira Force.

He was found at the foot of the falls.

The team lowered an air ambulance paramedic and team members to him before he was hoisted out of the water and up the bank to the North West Air Ambulance helicopter.

Yes. The law is frequently broken anyway. It's unenforceable
