Glacier Collapses in Swiss Alps

Glacier Collapses in Swiss Alps

A glacier in the Swiss Pennine Alps collapsed, Thursday, August 6, causing a dramatic ice avalanche.

Footage of the break was captured by a climbing instructor who was teaching children nearby.

The collapse occurred about 2,650 meters above sea level, in an ice layer that has become thinner in recent years due to climate change. (REUTERS)
