Poor Two Brothers & Fiancée! All 3 Italian Climbers Found Dead On Mont Blanc

Three Italian climbers were found dead Friday on Mont Blanc in the French Alps, three days after they set out to summit Europe´s highest peak, rescue workers said.

The body of Luca Lombardini was recovered by the mountain police rescue service. Those of his brother and his fiancee were located nearby but have yet to be retrieved.

“They are probably buried under rocks and ice in an area covering a few dozen square metres,” an official at the rescue service said.

They were found around 1:00 pm (1100 GMT) at the foot of the Aiguille Verte (“Green Needle”), one of the peaks in the Mont Blanc massif.

“They were going along a ridge at an altitude of 3,400 to 3,500 metres (11,100-11,500 feet), and it seems they slipped and fell together,” the official said.

The first body was recovered after rescuers cut the cord linking the three climbers, and attempts to recover the other two resumed this morning.
