BISHKEK, August 3 (Itar-Tass) — Rescuers of the Emergencies Ministry of Kyrgyzstan has successfully evacuated a Russian mountaineer who during climbing one of the peaks in the Issyk-Kul Region of the republic broke his leg and could not move independently, the ministry’s press service told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“The evacuation operation was complicated by the fact that the location of the Russian was not precisely known, as well as by the fact that it is difficult to find a place to land a helicopter in the mountainous terrain,” the Emergencies Ministry said. However, during the day the climber - Eldar Valiulin, who arrived in Kyrgyzstan from Tatarstan on July 28, was found by rescuers. He has now been taken to the hospital of the republic’s regional centre Karakol.
“Four specially trained rescuers were engaged in the operation of the search and taking down of Valiulin,” the ministry stressed. The ministry received a report about the health problems of the climber from the staff travel company on Thursday. According to them, the injured man intended to climb a peak with a height of five thousand metres.
