Two Polish tourists lost in the mountain Elbrus on July 21 found alive today, said a representative of North Caucasus Center of Ministry of emergency situations (emercom).

Two Polish mountaineers, Roman Kuznyar, 58, and Yazik Krants, 65, ignored the bad weather warning and kept on climbing the north slope of Elbrus yesterday. As a result they were lost. One of the guides informed the local  service of emercom about their loss.
