Polish tourist dies after a fall in the High Tatras

A Polish tourist fell from the peak Východná Vysoká in High Tatras on October 7 and died. The mountain Rescue Service informed the TASR newswire that in the morning, a Polish tourist saw a woman falling from this peak which is 2,428 meters tall towards the Veľká Studená valley. The rescuers thus asked airborne rescuers for cooperation who landed at the heliport in Starý Smokovec and took two mountain rescuers onboard. However, they could not get to the valley due to strong wind and clouds, and thus returned and continued on foot.
