Initially, a guide and a group of tourists from Poland (TURE team) were trying to help the injured man. They have been trying to transport the victim from the mountain alone until the professional help was received.

On March 8, 2020 at 2:30 pm the rescue team from Pip Ivan Mountain received a message that in the area of Smotrych mountain there was a tourist from Kiev who needed immediate help. The man injured his lower extremity. He was a member of tourist group from Kiev climbing to the Pip Ivan mountain. At 2:47 pm three rescuers and four volunteers started carrying out emergency rescue operation – reported Department for Civil Safety of Ivano-Frankivsk Regional State Administration.

At 8:24 pm near the Dzembronya village (Verkhovyna district), members of rescue team met the instructor and members of the tourist group and handed them the injured person in a satisfactory condition. The rescue operation took about five and a half hours.
