Summary of "Circumstances and causes of death of hikers at different altitudes: A retrospective analysis of hiking fatalities from 2003-2018."

The number of hikers and the popularity of hiking in the Alpine region is great. Inevitably linked to this, natural deaths as well as fatal and non-fatal accidents occur. Nevertheless, there is little data available on hiking accidents in particular. This study examines the circumstances of accidents and the causes of death of hikers who have suffered fatal accidents.
