Tommy has since made a full recovery aside from sustaining nerve damage in his hands and feet

Just how stupid do you have to be to write that sentence?

Tommy Price, 27, was climbing Blencathra in the Lake District with a friend on January 6

Someone went out of their way to have an an alibi for where they were on Jan 6

I live close to the Missouri River.  There are numerous River Rats (persons born and raised, probably 3rd or 4th generation river dwellers) who live near the river and are none too pleased by this idea to divert Missouri or Mississippi Rivers.  This sort of bright idea comes up every decade or so and never gets any traction that I've noticed but the need for water in the West gets continually more severe.  River Rats are generally peaceful people until you mess with their fishing, beer, guns, pickups, or boats.  Do that and the River Rats will come at you and that never ends well for the invaders.  I sat in a discussion of this a decade ago and, after an hour of heavy drinking and some small talk about boat motors, the River Rats seemed to agree that any attempt at river diversion would lead to mass disabling of heavy construction equipment and whatever else destruction of the construction project they could arrange.  I believe the River Rats and think they are very capable of adding years of time and kajillions of dollars to the project price.  It's best to stay on friendly terms with River Rats.

Wrong thread.  I thought I'd never do that but here we are.

My kid just went to the Lake District a couple weeks ago, so I had to google to figure out that she summited Scafell Pike (3,209'), not the 350-foot-lower site of this guy's resurrection.

She did say everyone with her seemed like they were going to die, though.  Probably from living in the flatlands.  (She grew up hiking in the 9,000' to 13,000' range, so she didn't quite see what all the fuss was.)
