Irish Times - Post Mortem on Hillwalker
According to the Irish Times a postmortem examination is to be carried out on the remains of a man found during the search for a hillwalker in Connemara who went missing during a St Patrickís day walk. The body was recovered on the eastern side of Leenane Hill at about 3pm Saturday, five hours after the search began for the missing walker, a Dublin man in his 50s.
The Irish Times is reporting that the missing man, an experienced walker, informed his phone contact on St. Patrick's Day, that he would climb Leenane Hill at the northern end of the Maamturks. The remains of the hillwalker were removed to University College Hospital, Galway, where the postmortem is expected to be carried out on Monday.
The manís identity has not yet been made public.
A post-mortem examination is performed to establish the cause of death which may not necessarily have resulted from a fall or other hillwalking accident. Death from heart attacks, strokes and so forth may sometimes cause death in a mountain setting. Such issues are generally the subject of an Inquest by the Coroner in charge of the case. The post-mortem report will usually clarify the circumstances leading to death. Whatever the cause of death, we extend our sincere sympathies to the family and friends of the deceased, being deeply cognisant of their loss.
