Search and rescue teams had to use a helicopter to save a 15 year old girl who fell and went missing in the Selecka mountain near Prilep.

The girl was reported missing this morning. The helicopter was scrambled because of the poor terrain and the fear that the girl has sustained injuries. Rescuers found her with some injuries due to the cold but in overall good condition around noon today.

She will be kept in the hospital for observation for a few days, and we are treating her with vitamins and antibiotics, said doctor Dragan Bogoeski from the Prilep hospital.

The girl was lost together with a boy, who accompanied her on a hike toward a mountain hut. The two spent the night in the open.
