French hiker's body found, row over rescue effort

The body of French hiker Simon Gautier arrives in the port of Policastro, a hamlet of the Municipality of Santa Marina, near Salerno, southern Italy, 19 August 2019. The body of the French tourist was found in a gully near Salerno on 18 August, nine days after he called emergency services saying he had fallen and broken his legs. The body of Simon Gautier, 27, was found at Belvedere di Ciolandrea near San Giovanni a Piro. He made the emergency call after his fall on August 9. But search and rescue operations only started 28 hours later. Friends and family who came from France to take part in the rescue bid have criticised alleged delays.
