Andalucía’s Sierra Nevada has claimed its third victim after the body of a 22-year-old man was discovered by a mountain rescue team

According to reports, the young Belarusian man was last seen on Sunday, December 11, after telling friends he was embarking on a hiking trip. Everything points to the young man having fallen and then being swept away by the river, according to police sources who spoke to Europa Press.

The Guardia Civil’s mountain rescue unit had been searching for him since he was reported as missing over the weekend.

The bodies of two Hungarian ladies, who appeared to have perished from hypothermia, were found on Monday close to the university dorm in Hoya de la Mora, making him the third person to have recently been discovered dead in the Andalucía’s Sierra Nevada in Granada, Spain.

Hiking in Spain is not without risks. Especially in mountainous areas. This is shown every year when rescue workers across Spain receive calls to rescue hikers and mountaineers stuck in perilous positions.
