- Because a young hiker twisted her ankle while descending the Jochberg and was no longer able to climb down herself, the Kochler mountain rescue service was deployed late on Friday afternoon around 5:15 p.m.

The mountain rescue service announced this on its Instagram channel.

Challenging rescue due to nightfall

The approaching darkness was a challenge for both the volunteer rescuers and the helicopter crew who were alerted.

As the head of the Kochler mountain rescue service, Toni Geiger, reported when asked, the rescue helicopter “Christoph Murnau” had to turn around again due to the twilight and the location being difficult to reach.

“He could no longer winch at the scene.” In a further approach, three mountain rescuers were dropped off by the helicopter at the “Jocheralm”.

“From here they had about a 20-minute walk with the first aid equipment to the patient – ​​a 22-year-old from the Munich area.
