He says the man he reported had to walk a short distance from the tour group to get phone coverage.

– The tour group should be well equipped. But I realized that it is not easy to wake him up again, and therefore they need help, says operations manager Kolltveit.

Shortly before 12:00, the police stated that an air ambulance had arrived in the area and monitored the tour group.

– The person is still crack down. I got extra clothes.

The rescue helicopter should be on the spot around 12.15 with representatives from the Alpine Rescue Group.

At approximately 12.40, HRS’s rescue manager Namork reports that a rescue helicopter is on site with a rescuer on the ground and working to deliver the patient.

He will then be airlifted to the hospital. Namork says it will be decided based on the extent of the damage.
