Avalanche in Austria: all 10 feared missing found alive


According to the Austrian Press Agency (APA), everyone missing after an avalanche Sunday near the mountain villages of Lech and Zürs in Austria was found alive.

Four were injured, including one seriously, it said. The site will be cleaned up on Monday.

It had previously reported that some of the injured were taken to a clinic in Innsbruck and to the hospital in Bludez.

Rescue workers initially feared 10 people were missing in the avalanche, based on video of a ski guest taken just before the avalanche erupted.

The video appeared to show about 10 other skiers in the avalanche trail, but ended before showing what happened to the skiers, Hermann Fercher from Lech/Zürs-Tourismus said, according to the press agency.

According to APA, rescue workers assumed that all skiers in the video, who have now all been recorded, were lost in the avalanche.
