Six climbers are dead in the French Alps

A hiker has found this morning the lifeless body of six climbers at 2,700 meters at the peak of Neige Cordier, located in southeastern France, said sources with the emergency services quoted by local media. According to France Info radio, there was a search of the six people whose bodies were found by chance on a very steep corridor in Glacier "Plate des Agneaux" within the Ecrins massif, a mountain range in the Dauphiné Alps.

Not specified even the identity of the six climbers on the police unit that specializes in mountain rescues who traveled to the site believe they could be victims of an avalanche or a snow bridge. The bodies of the group of climbers were transported by helicopter to the town of Villar d'Arene, located about five kilometers, which later installed a chapel.
