Italy avalanche: 6 people found alive in buried hotel
Rescuers have found six people alive under snow at the site of the avalanche that buried a hotel in central Italy, the local fire department said. A spokesman for the department, Luca Cari, told CNN the rescuers are in contact with the group but are yet to reach them.
Civil Protection services said that the hotel was in the process of being evacuated due to the earthquake when the avalanche hit. Guests had settled their bills and were waiting together in the lobby with their luggage.
