NALCHIK, February 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Two Alpine climbers have lost contact after an accident at the altitude of 5, 200 meters on the way to the Elbrus mountain peak.
A rescue team has been sent to the mountains to search for the two climbers hoped to survive. Another group of Alpine climbers informed the Elbrus Highland Rescue service about the accident, saying the two people presumably fell into a mountain crack. The two climbers are hoped to survive because their fellow climbers from the other group could still hear the voices of the two in a trap.
The rescuers are to reach the scene by 7.00 pm Moscow time, weather permitting. The two climbers in trouble had not been registered at the rescue service which has no data about their identity.
