Czech mountaineers rescued from Austrian mountain

Two Czechs were rescued from the Austrian mountain Grossglockner by helicopter on Tuesday morning. The mountaineers, aged 25 and 29, contacted the mountain rescue service on Sunday night, saying they had been injured by a falling rock on Grossglockner's north face but had managed to reach their tent. Because of adverse weather conditions a rescue helicopter could not be sent out on Monday.
