Response to April 2003 Accidents/Rescues


A longtime family friend and neighbor said 22-year-old Adam Engman-Delforge of Hopkins, Minnesota, was a graduate of Benilde-St. Margaret's School in St. Louis Park and had been a culinary arts student at DCT International Hotel and Business Management School in Lucerne, Switzerland since fall.

He was found dead Thursday on Mount Pilatus, a 7000-foot peak in central Switzerland near Lucerne after he had been missing for three weeks. Swiss police said he was found at the base of a track that had been closed to hikers for more than a year because of rock falls and was clearly posted as dangerous.

Engman-Delforge was last seen going up the mountain on March 28th by another hiker who was coming down. His parents didn't learn he was missing until April 7th when the school called them. They flew to Switzerland on Sunday.
