A foreign tourist couple, who were trapped in snow in Jammu and Kashmir's Kargil district, was rescued on Tuesday, officials said.
"Micheal Mobius and his wife got trapped in snow between Pudzong La and Rang dum on Monday," a district administration official said.
"They somehow sent a distress signal to the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre, where we received a SoS following which the Deputy Commissioner of Kargil immediately requested the Divisional Commissioner Kashmir and Commissioner Civil Aviation Jammu and Kashmir to request the Air Force to launch a rescue operation."
The couple is currently undergoing treatment at a hospital.
