In the case of an avalanche in Austria, significantly fewer people may have been buried under the masses of snow than initially assumed. The rescue workers are currently only assuming two possible victims, according to a spokesman for the task force on Sunday evening. Based on a video by a witness, it was initially assumed that ten people had been buried, but eight of the ten people have now been identified.
They were safe and just barely got out of the falling avalanche. "There is also hope that we have no missing persons reports," said the spokesman. After the accident, a skier was rescued from the snow masses. At times, almost 200 helpers were on the search for the avalanche cone below the Trittkopf on the Arlberg.
