Three Czech mountain climbers who ignored bad weather warnings and attempted the Seewand Climb in the Austrian Alps were rescued in an extensive emergency operation in the early hours of Saturday, the APA news agency reported. The trio set out despite high wind and heavy rain and got into trouble half-way up the rock. Two dozen mountain service rescuers were involved in the operation. One of the mountaineers was transported to hospital with hypothermia.
