A picture released by Italy's CNSAS rescue agency shows teams working at the avalanche-hit Hotel RigopianoThe toll from an avalanche that swamped an Italian mountain hotel rose to 16 dead and 13 missing Tuesday as a nearby helicopter crash claimed the lives of six people and dealt another blow to a region reeling from earthquakes and the heaviest snowfall in decades. The emergency response helicopter came down in thick fog near Campo Felice, a popular ski resort 120 kilometres (75 miles) east of Rome, during the evacuation of an injured skier. Campo Felice, located at 710 metres (2,330 feet) altitude but with pistes up to just over 2,000 metres, is close to the epicentres of earthquakes that struck the region last Wednesday and were followed by the killer avalanche.
