Men 'too stoned to walk' rescued from mountain

Men 'too stoned to walk' rescued from mountain”

Cumbria Police said officers were rendered speechless after the group called in to report they were unable to walk down the mountain, in the Lake District, "due to cannabis use".

'Persons stuck on mountain after taking cannabis. Now having to deploy [mountain] rescue, air support and ambulance to rescue them.

Online commenters were furious with the actions of the four men, suggesting that they should be billed for wasting the government resources.

The four unnamed ramblers were the subject of a full search and rescue mission atop Scafell Pike in the Lake District on Saturday evening.

Supt Justin Bibby of Cumbria Police stated: "Taking liquor or whatever other substance that could impede your judgment essentially builds your danger of getting into inconvenience".

Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team members successfully located them and brought them down safely at around 9.45pm. "Mountain safety is your responsibility", he said.

"The mountain rescue team had a particularly busy day yesterday dealing with this incident".

"Our priority is your safety".

Keith Lund wrote on Facebook: "Leave them on the mountains they don't deserve to be rescued by people who are volunteers".

I mean, I'm assuming they climbed up and then started smoked, I can't imagine they would have managed to climb the highest peak in England while stoned, but what do I know?

"They are volunteers, they do an unbelievable job and they are always there to assist those who get into difficulty", he said.

The Wasdale Mountain rescue team have been called out nearly 80 times during 2017 to assist people stuck on the mountains in the area.
