Climbers who ascended the Pico de Orizaba yesterday to recover the frozen body of a mountaineer discovered last Sunday have found another.
Both are suspected to have been part of a climbing expedition some 50 years ago in which two people lost their lives in an avalanche.
The recovery team found the second body alongside the first and concluded the two men died in each other’s arms, said the team’s chief, Hilario Aguilar. One had suffered from a head injury, indicating that he had fallen, and both still bore small fragments of clothing.
They were found on the mountain’s north face at an altitude of 5,270 meters.
The bodies have been left in place along with a marker to indicate their location, and authorities are hoping to use a helicopter to recover them.
At 5,636 meters, the Pico de Orizaba is Mexico’s tallest mountain and straddles the border between Puebla and Veracruz.
The mayor of the nearby town of Chalchicomula de Sesma, Juan Navarro, said he has received phone calls from other countries, including France, Spain and Germany, for information about the bodies.
