Sudelfeld: Helicopter has to stop - emergency doctor continues to hitchhike


The mountain rescue service Leitzachtal performed 27 missions in one weekend in Sudelfeld. There were also unusual scenes.

The mountain rescue service Leitzachtal performed 27 missions in one weekend in Sudelfeld.

There were also unusual scenes.


– With 27 missions in Sudelfeld, the Leitzachtal mountain rescue service was particularly challenged from Saturday morning to Sunday evening.

The rescuers had “almost no quiet minute” on the first weekend with snow and a good weather forecast, says Marinus Gruber.

The spokesman for the emergency services explains: "The reporting images ranged from simple assistance to severe craniocerebral trauma."

High fog: Helicopter has to land – emergency doctor stops drivers

In addition to the usual knee injuries, which were responsible for the majority of the 15 missions on Saturday, there were also three alarms outside the ski slopes among the nine missions on Sunday.

The mountain rescuers took care of a cross-country skier near Bayrischzell who had dislocated a shoulder.

A ski tourer was rescued at Miesing with a rescue helicopter using a cable winch and flown to a Munich clinic after sustaining a deep cut on his thigh.

In addition, a Bundeswehr soldier injured his leg on the Bockstein during training.

Three mountain guards took the cable car to the Wendelstein, looked after the soldier and brought him down to the valley with the Akia.

The rescue of a patient with craniocerebral trauma, who was injured at the start of the Kitzlahner run, was particularly unusual.

The emergency doctor, who was flown in by helicopter from the Inn Valley, could not be dropped off at the scene of the accident because of the high fog on Saturday - he landed on the Tatzelwurm.

There, the doctor independently stopped a driver and asked him to take him to the scene of the accident.

Another doctor from the ward of the Hausham comrades accompanied the patient down to the valley.

The two doctors arrived at an ambulance at about the same time.

The patient could continue to be cared for there.

"The doctor organized it himself," praises Gruber.

No apparent reason for the increase

However, the large number of operations in a short space of time is not unusual.

"It's actually always the case that accidents are not evenly distributed." There is no apparent reason for the accumulation, says Gruber.

But: "It shouldn't have been more." The emergency services were just about enough.
