Students and teachers at the Rosarino Nuestra Seora de la Guardia school, who had to be rescued after being released this Thursday in the midst of a snow storm on the Champaki hills in Córdoba, have already started their journey to the city. After several hours of uncertainty, related logistics were finally carried out so that 87 students and 13 adults begin the return journey as planned after midnight tonight.
After the delegation was rescued, Juan Carlos Sansoni, the director of the educational establishment, insisted that “no one was injured” and that “all the parties involved did an excellent job.”
Students and adults were stuck on the mountain because a snow storm did not allow the buses that were supposed to take them to reach Tres Arboles station, located at an altitude of 2,330 meters above sea level. This is why civil defense and firefighters from the province of Cordoba deployed a rescue operation with trucks in 4×4 trucks to look for them.

He was then shifted to a multipurpose room, where he received food and medical aid.
An extensive health protocol was implemented to assist all members of the group, as they were walking in heavy snow and very cold, although in general they were well equipped for that weather condition.
The Champaqui, Calamuchita and Cumingones mountain ranges received heavy snowfall in Trasalesira this Wednesday. The first happened in the area near Champaki. Then the snowfall intensified and arrangements were made to close the road completely around noon.
