Two people have died and a further three have been injured in the Valle de Pineta in the Ordesa National Park in Huesca today after becoming trapped by ice in a hollow created by an earlier avalanche.

The two dead people, 20-year-old M.P.M. and 21-year-old J.M.G., both from Tarragona, were with a group of eight people who had gone to spend the day in the Pineta valley.

According to a source from within the Guardia Civil, the incident occurred at about 4.45pm.  A specially-equipped police rescue helicopter went to the scene, but nothing could be done for two of the group who had climbed into the hollow.
