Saving students and teachers from mountain ordeal

99 young people aged 12, 14 and 8 teachers from the southwestern German region of Ludwigshafen were taking a road too challenging for their equipment and skills on Tuesday, Vorarlberg police announced Wednesday night. The teachers chose the route based on misinformation from the internet.

Police said the route was described online as an “after-work classic ride”. “Indeed, the narrow Heuberggrat is a partially exposed trail with climbs that require a head for hikes, confidence with feet and experience in alpine terrain.” The ground was also wet and slippery.
