On Tuesday, there was another incident in the Śnieżka area. A young Czech woman slipped down the “gutter of death”. Polish and Czech rescuers took part in the rescue operation.
On Tuesday afternoon, the rescue services received information about a young Czech woman who slipped off the so-called a gutter of death towards Kocioł Łomniczki – reports the website novinky.cz. The 18-year-old woman was part of a group of six people.
Mountain rescuers and ground crews immediately went to the scene of the accident, and a Czech rescue helicopter and GOPR Karkonosze were also called. Due to difficult conditions, the helicopter had to return to base. Strong winds blow in the area of Śnieżka, which exposes ice-covered surfaces.
According to novinky.cz, rescuers found the woman safe and sound. He added that the tourist belonged to a group of several people who set off on a closed anniversary route. Horská služba wrote on its Facebook profile that the tourist, together with another group, continued hiking towards Karpacz.
– The others were unable to get out of the icy area, so they called for help – explained Marek Fryš, spokesman for the Czech service.
