There are two ropes overwhelmed by the ice. Rescue was difficult because the area is not safe. The superintendent of Trento asked everyone «not to approach the disaster area, because, beyond the danger of the site and the incivility of these behaviors, there is the risk of hindering the rescuers’ operations. We will be hard on those who violate the prohibitions ».
