A MAN died after falling "some distance" into a waterfall in Eryri.

The man and his brother had been walking in the Carneddau in Cwm Llafar on April 3.

When calling the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation (OVMRO), it was reported that the man was now out of the water but was "lying unconscious with head injuries."

The OVMRO incident log said: "A local hasty party deployed directly and a further two hill teams dispatched with further equipment from base while Rescue 936 was also tasked.

"The helicopter located the casualty and managed to land on approximately 200m from them.

"The initial hasty party assisted the winchman to assess and move the casualty onto a stretcher but it was evident that he had not survived his injuries.

"The casualty, brother and hill team were lifted back to base by R936.

"The thoughts of the team are with the family and friends of the walker at this difficult time."
