Two Czech mountaineers stranded on Grossglockner

Two Czech mountaineers remain stranded at an altitude of 3200 meters on the Austrian mountain Grossglockner. The men, aged 25 and 39, contacted the mountain rescue service on Sunday night saying they had been injured by a falling rock on the mountain'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. A rescue operation may be possible on Tuesday, the APA news agency reported.
