STAVROPOL, August 31./TASS/. Rescuers have evacuated a Belgian tourist injured as he was climbing Mount Elbrus and handed him over to medics, a spokesman for the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situation’s department in the North Caucasian republic of Kabardino-Balkaria told Tass on Wednesday.
"The injured man was evacuated at 18:45 Moscow time," Kantemir Berov said, adding that medics took over then.
In earlier reports, TASS said two mountaineers from Belgium were injured on Mount Elbrus at an altitude of 5,200 meters above the sea level. The woman died, but the man has been rescued.
A group of 14 climbers were climbing to reach the highest point in Europe, accompanied by five guides. The group was registered at the emergencies ministry. This is a second accident in the region over the past 24 hours. In another development a Spanish national died in the area of Tyutyu-Su Mountain.
