A mountain hiker († 66) slipped down a slope on the Stanserhorn in the "Ober Chneu" area in the town of Dallenwil NW. As part of a search, the walker was quickly located – but the Alpine rescue service could only kill him.
The casual mountaineer was a 66-year-old man from abroad close to the border, who traveled with a group of another 14 people on the south side of the Stanserhorn.
Based on a preliminary investigation, the authorities assume that the injured man left the path for reasons that are still unclear. And then about 250 meters went over steep terrain, where he sustained the deadly injuries. (NBB)
