Four teenagers went hiking in the Snowdonia region of North Wales on Sunday morning. After they did not return home on Monday morning, the search for them began, the Daily Mail writes. The police reported that they found their car on Tuesday afternoon, and a few hours later they confirmed that the teenagers were dead.
Jevon Hirst, Harvey Owen, Wilf Henderson and Hugo Morris were killed in a traffic accident due to the storm that hit the area. At the moment when the young men disappeared, the weather was terrible. Emergency services, firefighters, police and forensics were soon on the ground – said Emyr Owen, a resident of Beddgelert, where the accident took place.
Our worker said that there was a serious accident near our hotel. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family – said Manasa Boma, manager of the Royal Goat hotel. The police reported that they are in contact with the families of the victims.
It was very rainy and wet in the past days, the rivers rose. We know it’s November and the weather is bad, especially for travel. We were hoping that the boys had just lost their signal and that was why they weren’t answering.
It’s difficult for people who don’t know the road here to find their way – one of the residents told the British media.
