A group of hikers from Puglia, Italy, were rescued by the Sicilian Alpine and Speleological Rescue during a night intervention in the Zingaro Nature Reserve in Trapani. The hikers, two men aged 26 and 32 and a 27-year-old woman, encountered a threatening group of wild boars while descending from Borgo Cusenza. Fearing an attack, they sought refuge in a nearby building and called emergency services for help. The Alpine Rescue team was alerted and used a off-road vehicle to reach and rescue the hikers. By collaborating with the Sicilian Forest Corps, the team scared away the boars and safely escorted the hikers back to their car. In case of accidents or emergencies in mountainous and rugged environments, it is advisable to call the emergency number 112 and specify the need for mountain rescue assistance. The emergency operator will then contact the Alpine and Speleological Rescue for help.
