Illness while reaching the refuge on the Col Visentin, cyclist dies in front of his friend

VITTORIO VENETO (Treviso) – Struck down by an illness on the bike. Tragedy in the early afternoon of today, November 20, around 2 pm, above Vittorio Veneto. A cyclist was cycling along the path leading to the Col Visentin refuge, on the Belluno Prealps, on the border between the provinces of Treviso and Belluno. With him was a friend. Suddenly he collapsed, seized by an illness. The partner immediately called 118: there was not a moment to lose. But there was no more heartbeat.

His friend gave him heart massage while waiting for help. But even the resuscitation maneuvers of the Suem health workers were not enough to save his life. On the spot, in addition to the ambulance and auto-medical, the Pieve di Cadore helicopter rescue service also landed. In vain.

The victim is the Friulian GA, 69 years old, of Torviscosa (UD), who was climbing on a mountain bike and collapsed to the ground, one kilometer above Forcella Zoppè. Since the Treviso emergency helicopter could not approach due to the presence of fog, the mission was entrusted to the Suem air ambulance. Unfortunately, once they landed on the spot and attempted the resuscitation maneuvers, the medical team was only left to note the death of the man, also a team of rescuers on the spot.
