A MAN who travelled 170 miles to help his stranded daughter in Snowdonia had to be rescued himself.

The man travelled from Cardiff to Cwm Lloer to come to the aid of his 22-year-old daughter - who had got into difficulty when her tent blew away in stormy weather.

After the woman's attempts to walk down in the dark were thwarted by a flat torch battery, she called her family, explained the situation and said she would shelter out of the wind, rain and snow in her sleeping bag.

It was then, the early hours of Easter Monday, that the concerned father set off from Cardiff to look for his daughter. 

After trying to rescue her in worsening conditions Easter Monday, he ended up getting help from mountain rescue volunteers at 5.30am after beginning to feel unwell.

A spokesperson for Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team said: "The team deployed a small party towards Cwm LLoer and on the way up they spotted Sad walking back down off the hill.

"At about the same time his daughter had arrived back at the roadside and managed to call her mother who alerted the team. Both casualties were reunited at Oggie Base and all team members stood down just before 9am."
