Canada: Snow slide kills five South Koreans


On Saturday afternoon a hiker contacted authorities concerned because of the collapse of the cornice on the peak of Mount Harvey, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Squamish said in a statement.

Five climbers from South Korea tumbled to their passings from a snow edge that gave route close Vancouver, police said. Climate conditions in the territory, north of Vancouver, have been cruel and shaky since Friday.

On Saturday evening an explorer reached experts concerned in view of the fall of the cornice on the pinnacle of Mount Harvey, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Squamish said in an announcement.

“The explorer expressed there were impressions prompting the summit and was worried for the wellbeing (of) any individual who was in the region. Squamish RCMP promptly advised the Squamish Search and Rescue and went to the scene,” the announcement said.

“A multi-jurisdictional pursuit and protect mission started yet because of the insecurity of the snowpack look endeavors were hampered the previous evening,” it included.

“It was resolved that there were five explorers unaccounted for and accepted to be in the zone where the torrential slide had happened.”

On Sunday, the bodies were found around 500 meters from the 1,600-meter Mount Harvey.

The Vancouver Sun revealed that the dead were experienced climbers and South Korean nationals.
