Climber rescued after injury on Ben Nevis

Battling wintry conditions on Britain’s highest mountain, the UK Coast Guard brought a fallen hiker to safety. While rope climbing on the peak, the man fell a short distance and injured his ankle. Because his position on the mountain made it difficult for a land rescue, the search and rescue helicopter team was sent in and brought the man to safety using its Goodrich hoist.
