Swiss cou­ple found on glacier 75 years af­ter dis­ap­pear­ance

Kuwait Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

A cou­ple that dis­ap­peared in the Alps 75 years ago has been found pre­served in a re­ced­ing glacier, end­ing decades of un­cer­tainty for their seven chil­dren. The bod­ies were found ly­ing near each other in the Di­ablerets mas­sif in south­ern Switzer­land, along with back­packs, a bot­tle, a book and a watch. The head of the Glacier 3000 ski re­sort, Bernard Tschan­nen, told Le Matin that the bod­ies were found last Thurs­day. “It was a man and a woman wear­ing clothes from the last (world) war”, Tschan­nen was quoted as say­ing. “The ice pre­served them per­fectly and their be­long­ings were in­tact”.
