Help from companions – hiker falls into crevice – unconscious


Help from companions – hiker falls into crevice – unconscious

The danger of high revs in glacial areas is greater this summer than it has been in a long time. A German hiker in the Vorarlberg Silvretta Group experienced this firsthand on Sunday. The 31-year-old fell into a crevasse during a trek under the 3,312-meter-high Piz Buin.

The young woman was with a group of acquaintances on the glacier in the Buinlücke area around 11:15 a.m. on Sunday when she slipped suddenly and through no fault of her own. The 31-year-old then fell into a crevice and lost consciousness.

However, her companions reacted quickly and quickly rescued the fallen victim from the crevice. The alarmed crew of the emergency doctor helicopter “Gallus 1” took over the emergency room on site and then flew the German to the state hospital in Bludenz for further explanations. According to initial police information, the hiker may have been incredibly lucky and escaped with a minor concussion.
