`Martin Tlusty, 20, from Prague had been climbing with friends in the Low Tatras mountain range in neighbouring Slovakia when he lost his footing, slipped and fell 1,000 feet down the side of the mountain. [..]

He was taken to hospital by mountain rescue teams but doctors said he suffered only cuts and bruises from the fall and would soon bounce back, local daily Novy Cas reported.

The man said he would be back climbing the same mountains as soon as possible. He said: “I’ll definitely be back.”‘
