The message of the full length BRK Berchtesgadener Land: A 22-year-old tourist from Brandenburg survived Saturday morning shortly after 8 hours of the intersection of Watzmann between Hocheck and the middle of the peak with a 50-meter crash through a stepped snow field.
Three other climbers, two of whom are mountain rescuers, hanging to the victim and giving first aid. A heavy mist prevented more than eight hours that the heavily injured could be thrown out by a helicopter, so a large mountain rescue convoy transported the young woman lying diagonally up to the ridge and then the rope insured through the Hocheck open area to the Watzmannhaus until finally shortly after 4:30 pm the Edelweiss 8 helicopter picked up the patient and the ambulance with the winch and managed to fly to Kyuroint.
When the first emergency call arrived shortly after eight hours, the crew of the Christoph 14 rescue helicopter in Traunstein could not locate the incident at first, because the Wozmantrant was already in the mist and the cloud slowly sank further. Then the crew brought two survivors of the Berchtesgaden mountain with extensive equipment from the Sneinwalk to the ridge and dropped them under a steep upswing to the midpoint pointing over the runner. The rescuers continued to climb towards the central peak, managed to locate the incident in consultation with other mountaineers, then quickly escaped to the snow field on the eastern side and provided the young woman with emergency medical help. The direct approach to the scene of the accident for the rapid removal of the seriously injured is no longer possible due to the thick clouds.

First, Christophe 14, and then the crews of the Edelweiss 2 and Edelweiss 8 helicopters brought other forces of the Ramzau, Berchtesgaden, and Markstellenberg mountain ranks to the mountain and put them as close as possible to the mist line that continued to sinks almost to Watzmannhaus and, despite several promising short-term gaps, prevents any direct rescue of the patient.
The mountain rescue team and the first respondents built a diagonal elevator and transported urgent medical help from Ramsauer Bergwacht, and the Berchtesgaden paramedics first delivered 22-year-olds lying about 40 feet vertically to the ridge. The rope is insured through many open terrain that brought mountain rescuers from 13.30 to Hocheck and then down to the Watzmannhaus, always in the hope that the mist clears and a rescue flight possible. The other rescuers, sent by helicopters, approached the rescue team, threatening dangerous areas like the tip, and bringing the patient with the extra equipment needed. "Emergency medicine was transported by the Berchtesgaden District Hospital to the fog line and then, so to speak, brought the relay led by our people to the patient," says Rudi Fundt.
Shortly after 2:00 PM Ramzau's Task Force alarmed all the forces of the mountain guards Ramzau, Berchtesgaden and Markchellenberg because the cloud situation did not improve and the seriously wounded had to be transported away from the ground.

The Bergwacht Crisis Intervention Service (KID) took care of the affected satellites, including the father and sister of the dead, who descended with mountain rescuers even to the Watzmannhaus.
