Schoolchildren who were lost in Brecon Beacons have been found

British media outlets are reporting that all of the 26 schoolchildren who were originally lost in the Brecon Beacons mountains in Wales have been rescued. The children had been separated into groups and got lost in low-lying clouds and inclement weather. Rescue teams were deployed to the mountains soon after they were reported as being lost, although a rescue helicopter was prevented from landing for some time due to the weather.

Rescuers initially found 14 of the teenagers and brought them to the pub near Tafarn y Gerreg, which served as a base of operations for the rescue efforts. However, now all of the 26 children have been located and are being transported to the hospital. Officials said none of them appeared to have been injured in the ordeal, although at least two of them were thought to be suffering from hypothermia. They are being taken to the hospital as a precaution so that they can be checked.

The teenagers who were lost in the Brecon Beacons were from St. Albans in Hertfordshire. They were participating in an expedition for the Duke of Edinburgh Award when they got lost and called for help.


Rescue teams are combing the Brecon Beacons mountains in southern Wales in search of several schoolchildren who are lost. So far rescuers have found 14 of the children, but six are still missing. WalesOnline reports that the schoolchildren who were found have been transported to the pub in Tafarn Y Garreg to warm up. At least two of the children are reported to be suffering from hypothermia.

The earliest reports suggested that the children had been lost in caves in the Brecon Beacons mountains, but later reports indicate that they were lost above ground. The six lost children are reportedly in four groups and do not have adults with them. Central Beacons Mountain Rescue told the BBC that rescue teams have been able to contact the four groups via phone intermittently.

The children who are lost are from England and in the mid-teens. They went to the Brecon Beacons for their Duke of Edinburgh Award.
