Special police forces rescued a 78 year old man from the snowed in village of Galicnik.

The man showed signs of dementia and fever but could not be rescued over land. A snow plow was sent to Galicnik on Sunday, but the vehicle could not get across. For this reason, a helicopter was dispatched, which evacuated the man using a special harness, said Stojance Angelov from the Center for crisis management.
