Man living on own in Akamas taken to hospital in state of dehydration

 

 

A 62 year old Briton who was living on his own in the Akamas has been taken to hospital dehydrated and exhausted.

The man was spotted yesterday by a woman hiker in the Akamas who alerted authorities that there was a person who appeared to require help.

Authorities launched a search and found the man at around 9 pm on Sunday night in a remote area. The man had built a makeshift structure with branches and told police that he was homeless and had decided to live in the Akamas.

Philenews reports that the man was dehydrated, exhausted and appeared to have been without food for a few days.

The fire service was brought in because the ambulance could not approach the area because of the rough terrain. The man was then taken by ambulance to hospital where he was admitted and the issue will be handled by the Department of Social Services.
