16-year-old died in South Tyrol in an avalanche, closures in the Aosta Valley

There was another fatal avalanche in South Tyrol: A 16-year-old skier was hit by an avalanche off the piste in the Pfelderer Valley on Sunday afternoon and killed. The local had been traveling alone. Because there was additional fog and darkness was falling, the buried victim was only discovered hours later, South Tyrolean media reported. The emergency doctor could only determine that the teenager was dead. A large contingent of emergency services was involved in the search.

Avalanche warning level 3 was in effect in the relevant area on Sunday. Shortly after the person who later died in the accident had used the mountain railway to the Karjoch, it was closed, as were the slopes, due to poor conditions.
