A snowboarded who rescuers searched for all night turned up at a hospital in Schwaz.
Ten members of the Kaltenbach mountain rescue team searched for the missing snowboarder for hours before he was found in hospital.
The 30-year-old Czech man had been in the hospital since Saturday.
He had been snowboarding with a group of colleagues when he separated from the group at around 13.00.
When he didn't turn up at the agreed meeting point at 16.30 his friends went out to search for him.
That evening when he still didn't turn up they alarmed police.
Mountain rescuers spent hours searching for the missing man.
In the early hours of the morning the search was abandoned.
Police made checks to find out when he last used his ski pass to help locate where he could be.
In the morning it turned out the man was in the hospital in Schwaz with a broken leg.
He had not had a mobile phone with him to notify his friends.
He had also not had any ID with him. Due to various spellings of his name the police had originally been unable to trace him to the hospital and this had lead to the misunderstanding.
