This past weekend, a group of six people attempted to push a disabled man who was in a wheelchair up to the summit of Snowdon, in Wales, but left him behind when they found the terrain too rough, reports UKClimbing.com. On their way down, the group then decided they were too tired to help the man back down, and called the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team for assistance. At this point, the wheelchair-bound man was beginning to show signs of hypothermia.
