The Keswick Mountain Rescue Team rescued a group of young hikers in the Lake District. The hikers were high after consuming magic mushrooms and eventually ended up feeling unwell.

The rescue team had received several calls from other hikers about the young group. 11 members of the rescue team were sent to mitigate the situation. The rescue took nearly two hours to complete due to the mountainous geography.

The distressed hikers were later escorted down the mountain to safety. The rescue team medic gave essential advice to the hikers regarding the timing of their onward travel.

Psilocybin mushrooms, A.K.A ‘magic mushroom’, are a type of fungi popular for their psychedelic effects. Consuming magic mushroom can cause hallucinations, and feelings of euphoria as well as anxiety.

In the UK, the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 makes possession, cultivation, or sale of magic mushrooms illegal. The Keswick Mountain Rescue Team is a group of around 50 volunteers who respond to calls year-round.

They also undertake training in advanced first aid, mountain, and water rescue. The Lake District is the largest national park in England.
