Two more climbers die on Mont Blanc
Sunday 15 July 2012
Two more climbers have died on Mont Blanc in the Alps following the deaths of nine people last week in a massive avalanche.
A military official from the Alpine rescue team in Entreves, Italy, said that the bodies of a Polish woman and Spanish man were found 14,436ft (4,400 meters) up on the Dome du Gouter, on the Italian-French border.
He said the two had been climbing with two Spaniards when they got caught in bad weather on Friday night.
On reaching a mountain refuge yesterday the two Spaniards alerted authorities who sent help for their friends.
The official said an Italian rescue helicopter located the two last night, but they were already dead.
