Italy Hotel Avalanche

Location: RIGOPIANO, Italy
January 22, 2017

A handout photo made available by the Italian Mountain Rescue Service ‘Soccorso Alpino’ on 21 January 2017 shows Soccorso Alpino volounters and rescuers at work in Rigopiano, Italy, 21 January 2017. Reportedly at last five bodies have been discovered earlier in the rubble of the luxury Hotel Rigopiano, in the Gran Sasso mountains, 180 kilometers (115 miles) northeast of Rome. Rescue crews are continuing the painstaking search for some 30 people trapped inside a remote Italian mountain resort flattened by a huge avalanche on 18 January 2017 that is believed was triggered by massive earthquakes in the region earlier the same day.
