Landslide at L’Epiphanie near Montreal – 2 People are Missing – January 29 2013

landslide in Montreal Nord (epiphanie), 2 people missing

Two trucks (2 missing workers) and an excavator (worker escaped) were trapped in huge mounds of loose gravel at the bottom of the snowy crater in L’Epiphanie, Que., 50 kilometres north of Montreal yesterday. The rescue operation is underway but has been suspended over night. The landslide swept several vehicules into a nearly 100 m deep pit. As you can imagine seeing these pictures and the movie, I think it will be hard to determine where the bodies are (the gravel may have slide over night)! Moreover, it is very cold out there. We hope getting positive news in the next moments. – The Star
