The World

March 03, 1985

An avalanche roared down on a car and a minibus on an Alpine road leading to the Swiss resort town of Zermatt, near the Matterhorn, killing at least eight people. Rescue officials called it the worst such Swiss disaster in 15 years and expressed fear that more victims are trapped under the snow. A search by dozens of rescuers and dogs was halted shortly before nightfall because of the danger of new snow slides.
