Hungarian tourists hit by avalanche; 1 death

Four Hungarian mountain climbers were caught out in the High Tatra mountains on Saturday afternoon, when an avalanche took them by surprise.

One of them was killed as the avalanche swept all four off the mountain face. Two others were seriously injured, while the fourth person made it out without injury.

The mountain rescue team battled against the elements to get the dead body and injured tourists down. One of the rescue team explained that this was not the weather for taking trips in the High Tatras just now.
