Fire brigade, police and mountain rescue continue to search for casualties in the Dolomites. Five people are still missing.
Almost a week after the glacier broke off in the northern Italian Dolomites, the search teams found the eleventh and last missing dead person.
As the emergency services announced on Saturday, the mortal remains of an alpinist were discovered who had been swept away by an avalanche of ice and debris on the Marmolada mountain last Sunday. The police and mountain rescue specialists had previously recovered ten dead people.
Thanks to DNA comparisons, the Carabinieri managed to identify the bodies. The dead are six men and three women from Italy and two Czech climbers. Eight people were injured. Among them are a man and a woman from Germany who are being treated in a clinic in the province of Belluno. The hospital said her condition was stable.
