I think it was impossible to escape from that huge mass. When I woke up there was help, I think it’s been half an hour. There was the lord of the shelter. I was in the middle of the ice “she told her to Republic from the hospital room where she is hospitalized.

He knows it was at the base of the glacier. A path on the rock remained to be made. With the companion they took the way back. «I was with Tommaso. Then he knew other guides, we had hooked them to the shelter. Nobody told us it was dangerous to go up, there were a lot of people going quiet. We left at 7am so it wasn’t cold but not super hot either. No one could have foreseen such a catastrophe. There were also expert guides in the overwhelmed party and if they were there, they obviously thought it could be done. What happened was not predictable, in any way. “
