Rescues Up 25% In Croatia This Season

It has been a busy summer season for the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS) in Croatia. After rescuing close to a dozen people, mainly tourists, in the last few days, the HGSS says that they have had to perform 25% more rescues than last season.

Whilst some holiday spots look to break records for visitor numbers during the summer season, unfortunately HGSS look on track to break rescue records this year, says head Vinko Prizmic. “There is a global trend for different types of tourism and more and more activities outside of settlements, resulting in a constant increase in accidents and rescues. Compared to last year, we can say there has been a 25% increase in searches from last season,” said Prizmic.
