Rescuers said on Sunday that she was in a hospital intensive care unit in a “serious” condition. Later that evening her condition reportedly improved.

The woman was taken off the Babia Góra peak in southern Poland on a stretcher, in a state of deep hypothermia, conscious but unable to communicate clearly, state news agency PAP reported.

Paweł Konieczny, the head of Poland’s volunteer mountain rescue service, said that hiking in the mountains in winter while dressed in summer clothes was a "new fashion" among Poles seeking an extreme challenge.

He warned that conditions in the mountains were currently difficult for hikers, with intense snowfall.

“Additionally, low temperatures require appropriate clothing and additional equipment,” he added.

While the woman had been waiting for help during the incident on Saturday, other hikers in the area offered her warm clothes. When rescuers reached her, her body temperature was 25.9 degrees Celsius, according to the PAP news agency.
