A tourist from Poland was severely injured in his leg during a lonely descent from Gerlach – the highest peak in the Tatra Mountains. Slovak rescuers in a stretcher carried the victim down. This is another accident of Polish tourists in Gerlach in recent days. Last Tuesday, three Poles needed help on the highest peak in the Tatra Mountains.

As the Slovak mountain rescuers reported on the website, the Pole was descending from the top of the so-called The Batyhovets Trial. When he seriously injured his leg, he was unable to continue the expedition and called the rescuers of the Horska Zachranna Service by phone.

In the peak parts of the Tatra Mountains there are still dangerous patches of frozen snow. Moving in such conditions requires experience in winter mountain tourism and having the right equipment, such as crampons, an ice ax and a helmet.
