A pair of skiers from Russia fell into a crevasse while on the Vallée Blanche in Chamonix. The two skiers were a father and son skiing the Géant Serac sector on Saturday when the son fell into a crevasse. During an attempt to rescue his son the father also fell into the crevasse.
On Sunday, Search and Rescue authorities were notified of the missing skiers by their friend who had not seen them return from skiing the day before. Authorities found the father wandering around the glacier having extracted himself from the crevasse, but unfortunately the son passed away and searchers were only able to recover the body from the crevasse.
