A mother has lost her life being slipped when she was trying to help her sick daughter in the Scottish Highlands. In the secluded area of Glen Coe, the rescue teams were called after raising concerns about a woman seen walking along away at around 9.30 am by the member of the public. The 23 years old daughter was seen scorched and cold near the popular trekking spot Buachaille Etive Beag.
The body of 52 years old mother was found a short distance away later. Local media described that the daughter had been taken ill earlier in the morning and her mother had slipped down while going to get help. They were lifted through flight from the mountain and brought to the town Fort William in an operation supported by the Coastguard.
According to the officials, the daughter is retrieving and stable in hospital. Andy Nelson from Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team claimed hill travellers who came across the daughter and said she was “mumbling something about her mum” but was “not making much sense ”. Mr Nelson said, “It is not entirely clear what has happened. The visibility was good and they were well below the snow line. They were both well-equipped ”.
