At 3:35 p.m. after two days of intense searching, the 62-year-old tourist who had lost his way on the Champaquí hill in Córdoba was found alive this afternoon.

“He is in good health, but battered and a little dehydrated,” told the commissioner Fabián Tissera, head of the operations division of the Department of High Risk Units of the Fire Department of the Córdoba police.

It all started on Monday, while walking down the hill with a friend and his son, the 62-year-old fell and injured his leg. As he was unable to walk, his two companions told him to wait at the scene, that they were looking for help.

At that time, according to information from the local media, he was near the stream of white quartz. However, when the rescuers arrived at the scene, the tourist was not.

The 62-year-old tourist (in the middle with the cane) was rescued this afternoon.

According to Tissera’s account when they were alerted by the injured man’s companions, they immediately launched a rescue operation.

“There were more than 40 firefighters and departmental police officers. In addition, 15 personnel from the Department of High Risk Units (DUAR) with three mobiles. They did a rake on foot and from a helicopter they flew over the area, but without success” Tissera explained to this medium.

Today, starting at 7.30 am, they reactivated the search for the tourist. The man was located by the volunteer firefighters of Villas Las Rosas, on the Las Rosas trail, between El Hueco and Vaikuntha Refuge.

“A guide who was with a contingent of people located him, recognized him and guided him along the path until the firefighters intercepted him,” explained the DUAR chief.
