ITALY: Three people hiking on the Monte Rosa massif in the Alps were missing.

Two women froze to death in the Alps, at an altitude of more than 4,000 meters, on the Italian-Swiss border, according to rescuers in the Aosta Valley, in northwestern Italy. A man who was with the two women was transferred to a Swiss hospital on Saturday evening. He suffered from hypothermia and frostbite, according to RTBF Info.

The rescue operation was disrupted by extreme weather conditions. A helicopter was forced to wait until nightfall to land near the victims.

According to the rescue services, the three people were found on the Italian side of the Vincent Pyramid.
