A hiker in northern Norwegian Troms was flown to the hospital after falling several hundred meters from a mountain after a landslide. It informs the local police district on Thursday night on Twitter.

‘A person is picked up from the mountain after a landslide on top of the mountain. It is estimated that the hiker fell several hundred meters, “the police write.

The injured, who is a woman in her 20s, is in stable condition and the injuries from the fall are described as moderate. This is the message late Thursday evening from the University Hospital in northern Norway, where the woman was transported to.

It writes the newspaper VG, which has received confirmation of the condition of the hospital.

The fall accident was reported around 8pm by another hiker who was on a tour of the mountain with the woman in her 20s.

After the call, the accident victim was immediately picked up by helicopter and transported to the University Hospital in northern Norway, the operations manager at the Main Rescue Center, Erik Kileng, tells VG.

The other hiker has also been brought to safety.

»The person who reported the accident was taken down from the mountain by police helicopter and driven to the University Hospital in Tromsø. The person is physically unharmed, “says the task leader VG.

This is not the first time in 2022 that there have been serious accidents in the mountain area in Troms. In April, an avalanche caused three skiers in a group of nine to lose their lives on the mountain.
