'Wet mummy' draws crowds to South Tyrol

It's really very well preserved. It´s amazing a mummy with more than 5,000 years! 

When you think of mummies, you tend to think of Egypt. But one of the oldest mummies in the world comes not from Egypt, but Italy. Its discovery astounded archaeologists because it was not only completely intact but also found with weapons, tools and clothes. Karen Bowerman went to South Tyrol to see the mummy for herself and to discover why it's not the only thing that's unique about Italy's most northerly province.
