Sixty hikers from Hungary were stranded in the Austrian Alps last weekend when their drunk guide disappeared. Apparently the guide wandered off and found his way back to the bottom of the mountain, leaving his group behind.
The hikers set off at around 3pm local time (2pm BST) on Saturday with an unqualified guide from a Hungarian trekking association to explore the Rax mountain range in eastern Austria, according to local police.
But around an hour later Austrian emergency services received a call from a distressed member of the group, who said he was lost with his daughter in the mountains.
The weather was taking a turn for the worse as 12 rescuers brought the group back down to safety. The group then ran into the irresponsible "guide," who claimed he hadn't touched a drop of alcohol. Read the Telegraph's full story here.
