NALCHIK, March 4 (Itar-Tass) —— The mountain rescuers found alive at about 18:50 Moscow time on Saturday one of three Ukrainian alpinists, who went missing on the slope of the Elbrus Mount on Friday, chief press officer of the North Caucasus regional emergency situation centre Kantemir Davydov told Itar-Tass.
According to the preliminary reports, an alpinist from Dnepropetrovsk Roman Kutsy was found alive. “He fell down several times and cannot move independently,” Davydov noted. Some rescuers are bringing the alpinist down to the settlement of Terskol, other rescuers continue the search. “Thanks to the information of the rescued alpinist, rescuers have narrowed substantially the search area,” Davydov noted.
Two Ukrainian groups of 11 mountaineers were participating in the ascent on the highest European mountain (5,642 meters). The weather has worsened sharply and the visibility was lost. At an altitude of about 3,800 meters two alpinists from Kharkov were noticed missing. Before this they were seen at an altitude of about 5,200 meters.
