A group of local residents went to Baikal the day before in a UAZ. Bad weather broke out, the car was running out of fuel, it was not possible to continue the trip due to very poor visibility (it was snowing, a snowstorm started with gusts of wind up to 35 meters per second), and the driver decided to stay in the car, and two passengers went on foot to the village Big Goloustnoe.
The man was found with mild frostbite in his legs. They are looking for their fellow travelers, TASS cites a source at the central office of the Ministry of Emergency Situations in the Irkutsk region.
Earlier, the ministry said that on March 20 and 21, due to bad weather, several groups of tourists found themselves in a life-threatening situation on Lake Baikal.
Rescuers found and evacuated 14 people. The search for the two missing continues.
