The smile of a resuscitated 4-year-old boy--given up for dead when rescuers found him under a massive snowslide--brought hope and joy to this snow-deluged valley Thursday, even as the death toll from two avalanches rose to 33. In the western Austrian village of Galtuer, where at least 28 people were killed, scores of rescuers used long metal probes to search for at least three people still believed buried beneath tons of snow.

A 5-year-old boy swept away while trying to cross a brook was among four people feared dead in Austria's worst floods in more than 30 years, police said Sunday. In Germany, at least five people died. The boy was carried Saturday night toward the swollen Danube River near Linz, 90 miles west of Vienna. A companion was rescued. Two men died when a wooden bridge collapsed into a river near Ybbsitz, in lower Austria. A third man fell into the water while repairing a landing at his riverside home.
