NALCHIK, March 4 (Itar-Tass) —— An alpinist from Dnepropetrovsk Roman Kutsy, one of three Ukrainian alpinists, who went missing on March 2 on the slope of the Elbrus Mount, was found alive and brought to the hospital in the city of Tyrnyauz. He was diagnosed with injuries, slight frostbites and has symptoms of the altitude sickness and exhaustion from hunger and frosts, a representative of the Elbrus highland search-and-rescue team told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
The alpinist was found alive at about 18:50 Moscow time on March 3 at an altitude of 4,100 metres on the south-eastern slope of the Elbrus Mount. He fell down several times, suffered from oxygen deficiency and could not move himself. Some rescuers brought him down to the settlement of Terskol, the others continued the search. Thanks to the information of the rescued alpinist, the search area has been narrowed substantially.
The rescuers noted that the lost mountaineers were equipped well and are experienced alpinists. The search for them will resume with dawn.
