The 112 Emergency Center received a call for help from the Saint Ilija Mountain above Orebic on Sunday around 9 pm. The call was sent by an American citizen who went hiking.
The night came with the low temperature and he felt endangered. The help was provided by the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS), station Orebic. With their rapid intervention, three members managed to locate the lost American, find him and bring him back to the foot of the hills without any injuries.
