It was dark on the runway when the accident happened. That’s why the driver of the large vehicle didn’t see the snowboarder behind him at first, as reported by “Spiegel”. He set the snow groomer in motion – directly towards the vacationer.
This is the Alpine Republic of Austria:
- a Central European landlocked country between Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic
- capital Vienna
- around 8.9 million inhabitants (as of 2021), 3,879 square kilometers in size
- Official language: German, regional official languages also Croatian, Hungarian and Slovenian
The 41-year-old acted reflexively and crouched in a hollow in the snow. When the vehicle ran over him, he was caught between the chains – and survived. The driver got out immediately and took care of the vacationer from Germany.
