Avalanche in French Resort Kills Skier

  • As per reports, an avalanche struck the French resort of Valfrejus, in which one skier died and two others went missing. A friend of the three skiers, all Dutch-nationals, said that they went for skiing on Tuesday afternoon. He further added, they texted him that they were lost.

    The rescue services were notified by the friend, and soon after, the rescue effort was launched for the skiing area. Due to the snowy conditions and danger of more avalanches, the rescue operation could not be done properly. On Wednesday, the rescuers tried reaching the area again but the access was restricted because of the previous day’s avalanche.
