Croatia: Dog rescues injured climber

The story of a climber from Croatia who was injured when he slipped on a slope, while his dog was warming him until the rescuers located him, is shocking.

In fact, the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS) announced that the operation it carried out to rescue him was one of the most difficult it has ever organized.

How the accident happened

The injured climber slipped on a 150-meter slope to the highest peak of Mount Velebit. 27 rescuers from Gospic, Zadar, Split and Istria took part in the rescue operation, according to Croatian media and broadcast by ERT.

The climber was on very inaccessible ground and the rescue operation lasted almost nine hours.

Rescuers described what happened on Facebook and wrote rave reviews about the dog that was with the climber, North. The dog was not injured, but curled up next to the climber warming him with his body for 13 whole hours.

“Friendship and love between man and dog know no borders. North passed without injuries, but his friend, a young climber, was not so lucky. She curled up next to him and warmed him with his body.

His faith did not end with the arrival of the rescuers, he was one of us who guarded his man for 13 hours. “From this example, we can all learn to take care of each other,” the rescuers wrote characteristically.
