Time and again there are sometimes fatal incidents in the Sill Gorge as part of parties. A 27-year-old German was hit on Sunday night. The young woman was on her way to a party at around 2.45 a.m. when she fell over a rock face about ten to 15 meters high.

Railway line closed
The woman suffered serious injuries. After the first aid, she was first brought out of the gorge with a requested ÖBB locomotive and then brought to the Innsbruck clinic with the ambulance. “In the course of the handling of the operation, the railway line had to be closed because numerous people were in the area of ​​the tracks and the rescue work was taking place in the area of ​​the railway line,” said the police.

Due to the large number of party guests present, several police patrols as well as the mobile surveillance group of the city of Innsbruck were on duty to ensure a regulated outflow of people and to prevent further falls in the area of ​​the accident site.

License plate stolen, tires blown
Incredible: In the course of the operation, previously unknown perpetrators stole two license plates from the patrol vehicles parked next to Brennerstrasse. In addition, a police car was deflated. A MÜG vehicle and a radio patrol vehicle were also smeared with paint.
