Dramatic rescue operations with a happy outcome
The good weather attracts many alpinists to the mountains and provides for quite a few rescue missions for the Valais rescue companies. In the last seven days, the rescue crews of Air Zermatt AG were called out on no less than 65 missions. In addition to numerous evacuations, injured alpinists also had to be flown to hospitals in Visp, Sion and Bern. Two dramatic missions reached the operations center of the Cantonal Valais Rescue Station on Thursday.
