Following two avalanches in the Fagaras Mountains in the Carpathians, Romania, about 60 people were trapped in a hotel.
After two avalanches in the Carpathians, about 60 people could not get out of the Cabana Capra hotel. It is reported that part of the avalanche covered the hotel building, and the other touched the parking lot, damaging the cars parked on it.
To rescue people, the help of rescuers who are now working at the scene was needed. It is reported that they have already taken a group of 17 people to the Transfagarasan track, and the rest are being helped down.
The head of the Department of Emergency Situations at the Romanian Interior Ministry, Raed Arafat, notes that the road by which tourists reached the hotel has been closed to traffic since October 30. Using it, the travelers violated the ban and endangered not only themselves but also the rescuers, the Digi24 portal writes.
