29-07-2013

Police in Croatia said on Monday that the mountain rescue service in Biokovo had recovered the body of a man believed to be a Czech mountaineer who has been missing since Thursday. The 47-year-old man presumably lost his way in low visibility and fell off a cliff. Fifty rescue workers with sniffer dogs and a helicopter with thermal vision had been out combing the Biokovo mountain side for the missing man over the weekend. The rescue service on Friday confirmed the death of another Czech tourist who appears to have died of a heart attack out trekking.
