Five bodies found after Canada snow slide

Search manager Martin Colwell said four bodies were recovered at the bottom of Mount Harvey and a fifth was located several hours later. Choi received a call at 1 a.m. last night from her brother-in-law who said the RCMP had told him there was no hope his wife would be found alive.

"She was holding (her) mom", said Kim, who was asked by the families with connections to the Korean community in the Vancouver area to speak on their behalf.

"They didn't do anything wrong", he said. "I can't say I know anyone personally, but it impacts us because it's very easy to imagine this could have been my parents, or my friends parents".

He said it appears the group stepped out on the ledge, or cornice, of unsupported snow and it collapsed under them.

A South Korean national was among five climbers who were killed in a recent small avalanche on a mountain near Vancouver, Canada, Seoul's foreign ministry said Monday.

Harry Kane Returns from Injury Way Ahead of Schedule in Tottenham Victory
In the 39th minute Spurs went 2-0 up through Dier who smashed the ball home from the edge of Watford 18-yard box off a loose ball. Asked what most impressed him, the Tottenham manager said: "Wow". "The message for us is to keep pushing, winning games".

Mr Colwell said using the trails up to the top of Mount Harvey is not usually unsafe but there were some very steep cliffs near the summit and getting too close to the edge can be hazardous. He descended and phoned 911. Family members of the hikers gathered at a school in Lions Bay near the trail where the walkers went missing, the Vancouver Sun newspaper said. The ledges can easily collapse and are hard to spot.

He believes there is a possibility that the ledge may have collapsed with some of the hikers on it.

On its Facebook site, North Shore Rescue describe the call out as a "possible code Alpha", which normally relates to an avalanche.

The weather in the area, north of Vancouver, has been harsh and unstable since Friday.
