On February 26, 1959, around 2 pm the group arrived in Vizhay. Dyatlov, as the leader of the trek, went to the local post office to send a telegram about their arrival at the checkpoint of the route. After checking in with AltaMater and the Sverdlovsk Political Bureau of extreme sports Igor asked the operator for a postal card form. He sent to his father Aleksei Alekseevich Dyatlov in Pervouralsk his last message writen on the back of a postal card. Rufa (Ruffina Alekseevna) is Igor's sister, a pupil in school No.12 in Pervouralsk.
