NALCHIK, August 18. /TASS/. Bodies of two Polish mountaineers have been found on Mount Elbrus, the highest peak in the Caucasus Mountains and in Europe, regional emergency service official told TASS on Tuesday.
"Two bodies and the coat of the third missing tourist were found by a helicopter crew on the Elbrus western summit at the height of around 5,400 meters above sea level," Albert Khadzhiyev said. "The rescue team is now preparing the bodies for the transportation."
Earlier reports said that three bodies had been found.
A group of six tourists from Poland was climbing Mount Elbrus. Three people returned safely, while others lost their way due to bad weather conditions, Khadzhiyev said.
