Four Turkish climbers were rescued in the mountain of Demirkazık, in Nigde province of Central Anatolia, on Saturday.
Four of the climbers, who participated the training camp of Turkish Mountain/Climbing Federation, headed for reaching the summit after completing their training. Due to strong winds and heavy rain, the group of climbers decided to turn back, when they were two hundred meters from the summit. On the way back one climber got lost and three others have got stuck. The three climbers called the gendarme for help on Friday afternoon. A search and rescue operation have been launched in aid of Gendarme Search and Rescue (JAK) and Provincial Disaster and Emergency Directorate (AFAD). Zeynep Ozal, Kerem Tabak and Kaan Erbas who have sheltered in a cave and the missing mountaineer Samet Hasırcı who were around Karamuk region were rescued following the rescue operations.
Zeynep Ozal, one of the 3 climbers who got stuck, said “We did not get lost, just could not take account of adverse weather conditions. That’s our only fault. We thought we could have come back a bit earlier but caught in heavy rain and fog. We could not keep going under those conditions. Thus we sheltered in a cave and now we are here.”
The rescued climbers were taken to Camardi State Hospital for medical treatment and then went to District Gendarmerie Command Hear to testify.
Apart from the four climbers, Mert Haskan was also with them but managed to get the camping area on his own and informed the officials to rescue his other friends.
