    Das Berg-Wunder von Tirol

    Saskia Weisheit (2014)

    Manfred Walter made headlines when he was found in a crevasse in the Tyrolean Alps six days after his fall - and alive. Unbelievable even for experts, because there has never been anything like this in the whole world before. Exclusively for 'Terra Xpress' Manfred Walter once again follows in the footsteps of his martyrdom. Extreme mountaineer Reinhold Messner, who comments on the events in the Alps, is part of this 'Terra Xpress' programme. In order to uncover the mystery of such a long survival in the ice, 'Terra Xpress' presenter Dirk Steffens, together with mountaineer Rolf Widerhofer, dares a delicate experiment in an artificial crevasse under medical supervision.
