: Six dead and many injured after avalanche avalanche on top of the Dolomites
UpdatesTrevisoThe rupture of glaciers in the Italian Alps has killed at least six people and injured at least eight others. About ten people are still missing.
After the dangerous avalanche in dolomite With at least six dead, emergency services want to continue searching the side of Mount Marmolada on Monday. But they have little hope of finding more survivors among the blocks of ice, snow and rocks. This was said by Walter Cainelli of the mountain rescue service in the northern Italian province of Trentino, on Sunday evening.
Dozens of people were missing on Sunday evening, ANSA news agency reported. Sixteen cars were counted in the parking lot at the foot of the rocky mountain from which the climbing tracks whose owners have not yet been found. „We don’t know yet whether the cars belonged to the dead or missing or to people unrelated to the accident,” said Maurizio Fogatti, regional president of the city of Trentino-Alto Adige. As many as 14 climbers were injured in the mountain disaster.
Search and rescue work in Marmolada was halted on Sunday evening due to the risk that more ice blocks could explode. The area around the glacier was completely closed to the public. Prime Minister Mario Draghi expressed his condolences to the victims and their families and was informed of the rescue and investigation efforts.
Extreme mountaineer and ecologist Reinhold Messner argues that the accident was the result of climate change and global warming. „This is eating glaciers,” the 77-year-old said in an interview with DPA.
Messner explained that so-called ice spiers — called ceraxes — then form at the edges of the glacier, „which can be as large as skyscrapers or rows of houses.” He predicted that accidents like the one in Marmolada „we will witness more often,” because „there are more rocks and ice falling today than in the past.”
And these can have dire consequences, such as on Sunday on the massif on the border between the regions of Trentino Alto Adige and Veneto. Visibly shocked mountain rescuer Luigi Felicity reported on the mission: „When we arrived at the site, we were presented with an incredible picture. There were blocks of ice and huge stones everywhere.”
ANSA news agency quoted investigators as saying that an „unimaginable bloodbath” occurred on the mountain, after which „it will be difficult to identify the victims because the bodies are cut off” by ice and stone.
