Firefighters were called out to Monte Terminillo, a massif (compact group of mountains) in central Italy after a group of women got into difficulty on Monday, 1 August.
This footage, posted on Twitter by Vigili del Fuoco, shows firefighters airlifting one of the women to safety.
The women were 2,000 metres above sea level, according to officials.
