A man who fell while gorge scrambling amongst waterfalls in Snowdonia has been airlifted to hospital.
The walker, 28, from London, fell down a bank and into a rockpool on the Aran Fawddwy mountain, north of Machynlleth, at about 16:00 BST on Saturday.
Aberdyfi Search and Rescue Team and a helicopter from RAF Valley on Anglesey battled hazardous weather conditions to reach the man, who was with friends.
He was flown to hospital in Bangor for treatment.
Earlier on Saturday a woman was flown off Snowdon suffering from hypothermia after being brought lower down the mountain by members of Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team.
