A group of 28 tourists from Europe got trapped in a deadly avalanche in the French Alps leading to Mont Blanc and 6 of them died while 9 are injured and many more are unaccounted for.
This has been reported in foxnews dated 12th of July 2012.
The climbers hailed from Switzerland, Germany, Spain, France, Denmark and Serbia and were caught in the avalanche at a height of 13,100 feet in the Mont Blanc range.
While one report indicated the dead as Two Spaniards, one German and one Swiss climber, another report mentioned about three British climbers being among the dead – rescue teams requisitioned helicopters and trained dogs to trace the missing climbers.
It seems a large block of ice broke off and slid down the slope, and the cascading snow grew to a huge 6-foot-thick, 160-foot-long mass of snow.
