RESCUE teams recovered the body of a 60-year-old Austrian woman on Monday, December 29, who froze to death after an accident in Sierra Nevada.

Another climber from the same group, a man in his 50s, was found in the early hours of Monday morning with signs of hypothermia and taken to a health centre at Pradollano ski resort for treatment.


The body of the deceased woman was found at 7.40am in the La Carihuela area of the mountains.
