An avalanche swept across a marked ski trail near the Swiss town of Andermatt, Thursday, December 26, injuring two people.
Four others either were rescued or extricated themselves from the snow unhurt. Police and rescuers searched the snow slide, after witnesses said more people might be buried.
The avalanche occurred mid-morning while many holiday skiers enjoyed mountain sunshine the day after Christmas. A police spokesman said it was an avalanche of considerable size. (AP)
