A man who went picking berries on Saturday in Rovaniemi died, said the Lapland police.
 
The local resident, just over 80 years old, left early in the morning to pick berries. Relatives reported the man as lost at around noon, and the police began searching for him.
 
The man was found but he died despite resuscitation attempts. The police are investigating into the cause of death.
 
The police stress that berry pickers should pay attention to the chilly weather and bring enough water along on any trips.
 
Mobile phones should be fully charged before undertaking any trips through the forest and next of kin should be informed of any planned berry picking schedules.
