Teisendorf – On Tuesday afternoon, a hiker from Upper Bavaria collapsed unconscious and died while descending from the Stoißer Alm back to his car at Neuhaus.
A hiker found the man, called the mountain rescue. Until the mountain rescue services Bad Reichenhall, Teisendorf-Anger and the Traunstein rescue helicopter “Christoph 14” arrived, the hiker tried to revive the man.
While other mountain rescuers drove with two all-terrain vehicles (ATV) over the forest road, which was still snow-covered in places, as far as possible to the place of action and then continued on foot, the helicopter brought two mountain rescuers to support the doctor and also put them with the winch Patient. Despite all efforts, the emergency services could not bring the 28-year-old back to life. The man was acutely ill with internal medicine.
“Christoph 14” picked up his ambulance again with the winch and made it back to the station in Traunstein in the last light of day. The mountain rescue service brought two police mountain guides from the Alpine task force to the deceased with the two ATVs who recorded the death. The emergency services then drove the corpse with mounted chains in the rescue vehicle into the valley and handed it over to the undertaker at the Kohlhäusl car park. The crisis intervention service of the mountain rescue service took care of three companions of the deceased who were still on the way on the Teisenberg and were picked up by the mountain rescue service after the descent to Neuhäusl.
A total of 16 emergency services were required until 9:30 p.m.
