Recent rescues from Hospitàles Route?

Veteren hiker...first Camino
Currently a few days past hiking the Hospitàles Route (Monday, May 14th) and a number of hikers (separately) have mentioned in passing that there have been 4 “rescues” up there recently.
1. Is that true?
2. What does a rescue from Hospitàles entail?

1. I spent last night at Campiello, and crossed to Barducelo by the Hospitales route this morning. Nobody here seems to know of anything requiring a rescue squad. The weather conditions have lately been, and are forecasted to remain, very good.

2. The same as a rescue from any other off-road location, I imagine. A quartet of strong guys with a collapsible stretcher, to carry the patient down to the nearest road along which a wheeled vehicle can be brought up.
