Slovak mountain rescue service saves two Czech ski alpinists

The Slovak mountain rescue service on Saturday saved the life of two Czech ski alpinists who ran into trouble in the Tatra Mountains. The Czechs overestimated their strength and were unable to get back to camp. The rescue service found them an hour past midnight by which time one of them was unconscious and both were suffering from hypothermia and dehydration. The Slovak Rescue Service says Czechs are generally prone to taking extreme risks in the mountains.
