Magic Mushroom Trippers Rescued from Mountain Top
A group of men on a mountain top had to be rescued after becoming stranded while tripping on magic mushrooms.
The Keswick Mountain Rescue Team responded to reports of the men acting strangely in the Lake District National Park.
Two of the men became ill after ingesting the psychedelic fungi, which impaired their ability to descend from the peak.
The rescue mission involved 11 rescuers and took a total of two hours to complete.
Stranded on a Mountain Top
The Keswick Mountain Rescue Team was called to rescue a group of men on a mountain top who were reportedly tripping on magic mushrooms.
The men were acting strangely and were unable to come down from the peak.
The team had to stage a delicate operation to convince the men to let them guide them to safety before it got dark.
Concerns about the Men’s Health
Two of the men became ill after ingesting the mind-bending psychedelic fungi.
The Keswick Mountain Rescue Team had to walk them down and give them advice regarding their onward travel.
Magic mushroom possession and sale is illegal in the United Kingdom, but it is not clear whether the police were involved in this case.
Risks of Ingesting Magic Mushrooms
Ingesting magic mushrooms can induce nausea, vomiting, muscle weakness, and lack of coordination, according to the US Drug Enforcement Agency.
While the fungi are known for causing hallucinations and serotonin activation, they can also trigger panic reactions and psychotic-like episodes.
