Stubai Alps – a resident fell in front of his friends


Tragic mountain accident in the Stubai Alps: To prepare a midsummer fire, four friends were out in the rocky terrain. A 58-year-old fell to his death, the comrades had to watch helplessly.

The 58-year-old Rotterdammer ran under the Waldrasterspitze just after 9.30 am. “It happened in a place where you have to climb easily. A piece of rock has erupted and the mountaineer has fallen,” said an alpine police officer who is already investigating the accident in the municipality of Matrei am Brenner.

“Not holding back”
The depth of the fall was about 50 to 100 meters. “The terrain is very steep and rocky. If you fall here, there’s almost no stopping it,” the official explained. The local victim and three other companions (64, 46 and 33) were on their way to preparatory work for the upcoming midsummer fire in this area.
