Glacier Ice Chunk Collapse Kills 7 in NE Italy; Italian PM Says It's Linked to Climate Change

 The collapse of a chunk of glacier ice in northeastern Italy yesterday left at least seven people dead and several others injured, the Euronews website reports today (July 4, 2022).

The ice crashed into a group of more than a dozen hikers  who were making their way across a popular trail on the Marmolada glacier at more than 3,300 meters, the highest mountain in the Italian Alps.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi came to the site of the accident and said ,"This is a drama that certainly has unforeseen elements, but certainly also depends on the deterior action of the environment and the cliimate situation."
