He had sustained head and rib injuries. The Pride of Cumbria Air Ambulance assisted in the rescue by ferrying equipment and personnel to the summit of the mountain.
Due to the nature of the terrain and the reported injuries a Sea King from Prestwick attended and the casualty was winched from the scene and flown to Cumberland Infirmary Carlisle.
