The two women missing yesterday on Monte Rosa died of severe hypothermia, while the man, who was with the victims, hypothermic and frozen, was taken to a hospital in Switzerland and is considered out of danger. This is what was communicated by the Valle d’Aosta Alpine Rescue, which late at night concluded the recovery operations of the three mountaineers missing since yesterday on Monte Rosa.
During the night the three were joined under the Pyramide Vincent, at an altitude of 4,150 meters, and taken to the Mantova refuge. The rescue teams, made up of technicians from the Valle d’Aosta Alpine Rescue, joined by rescuers from Alagna and the Alpine Rescue of the Cervinia Financial Police, operated in extreme conditions due to the storm and strong wind, which prevented to the Air Zermatt helicopter to approach the recovery site. The Swiss then managed, late at night, to reach the refuge. The two women, despite cardiopulmonary resuscitation operations, died, while the conditions of the mountaineer taken to hospital do not cause concern.
