A snowshoe hiker died in an accident on Sunday.

On Sunday morning, a snowshoe hiker († 38) went on a hike on Selun alone, according to the St. Gallen canton police. However, after failing to return home that same evening, he was reported missing.

Then, on Monday afternoon, the sad certainty: the man could only be rescued dead by the rescue workers. He fell about ten meters deep into a karst hole. The canton police assume that the karst hole was covered with a small amount of snow and therefore not visible to the snowshoe hiker. (chs)
