Walker dies on mountainside

A WALKER died after being found in a collapsed state on a mountain in Co Donegal yesterday.

The man, who was in his 50s and understood to be from the area, had been spotted walking in the distance on Slieve League in Donegal Bay by another walker. But the walker then found him collapsed on the ground at around 5.40pm and alerted emergency services. A helicopter was dispatched.

A defibrillator was used and CPR was performed during the airlift; however, the man was pronounced dead at Letterkenny Hospital.
