A misfortune over which several question marks hang. University student Roxana († 23) died tragically after Saturday’s sledding over Gelnica.
The police are already dealing with sleigh rides in the dark with my friend Kristína (23) in snowy terrain. The circumstances in which the act took place, the degree of fault and the involvement of other persons or vehicles are under investigation. The men of the law do not rule out the possibility that a car may have assisted during the tragic sledding.
The sudden and unnecessary death of Roxana († 23), who studied economics at university, greatly affected not only her loved ones, her parents Marcel and Jozef and her younger sister Soňa, but also many Gelničans. Roxana was called Roxy and they knew her as the right girl. No one can explain what could have happened deep in the forest at a fateful moment. The sleigh rides took place in the dark, more than 11 kilometers from the mouth of the Perlova dolina valley – that is, far from the district town and, moreover, on the forest road towards Kojšovská hoľa.
In addition, there is no meadow suitable for sledding at the Polianka shelter. Roxane, who was badly injured, tried to help the summoned paramedics. “We accepted the call for the 155 emergency line, saying that a woman should have been injured in a winter sport, on a sled,” rescue spokeswoman Alena Krčová informed. “After arriving at the scene, rescuers treated the woman unconscious. Due to her serious condition, she was put to artificial sleep and taken to hospital in critical condition. “
