TBILISI, January 10 (Itar-Tass) — The condition of a Russian mountain climber who survived an avalanche in Georgia’s Kazbegi district is satisfactory and his life is out of danger, a doctor of a regional hospital where the climber had been taken told reporters on Thursday.
“His condition is satisfactory, hemodynamic is stable. He was taken to an in-patient department,” the doctor said. “The patient had a second-third degree frostbite of his left hand. We began comprehensive intensive treatment.”
Tbilisi’s TV channels named the survived Russian climber – nineteen-year-old Maxim Stepanov. He and other three climbers were trapped in the avalanche as they were descending Mkinvartsveri Mount.
According to the preliminary information, other three climbers died. Ukrainian climbers found Stepanov near the site of the accident and with the help of local residents took him to a hospital.
A special search group was set up, but bad weather and heavy fog hamper rescuers to approach the site of the accident.
The Kazbegi region is located near the North Ossetian section of the Georgian-Russian border. Mkinvartsveri Mount is 5,047 meters high.
In 2011 one Ukrainian and one Turkish mountain climbers died while ascending and descending the mount.
