  • Any news on Argentines who fell into a crevasse?

    I have seen a few news stories about the 2 Argentine men who fell into a crevasse and that a rescue mission was ongoing, but it has been a few days with no followup information.

    Does anyone know if they were rescued?

    Doesn't seem to have been any news since about the 19th and it's now a week since they disappeared. I don't think they had a chance, it was a 60m (over 190 feet) fall.

        It gets worse:

        Three Chilean soldiers whose snow vehicle fell into a deep crevasse in the Antarctic on Wednesday have been found dead, officials say.

          that's really scary that the snow would just cover up a hole so huge....
