Rescuers Search for Missing Skier after Austrian Avalanche

Sunday, 24 February 2019 07:38 AM

BERLIN (AP) — Austrian authorities say a German man is still missing after an avalanche in Austria buried a group of backcountry skiers, killing one and injuring a second. Three other skiers were rescued unharmed.

The Austrian news agency APA reported Sunday that Austrian and German rescue teams and planes were looking for the missing 43-year-old man, but their search was complicated by the threat of new avalanches.

The six men had been on a backcountry tour through a forest near the Austrian town of Reutte on the German border when an avalanche buried them Saturday afternoon on a treeless stretch.

The missing man, the 42-year-old who died and the 37-year-old who was injured were all from Bavaria in southern Germany. It was not clear where the three unharmed men came from.
