Climbers Found Dead In Grand Teton National Park

Grand Teton National Park – Two climbers apparently fell to their deaths on Grand Teton mountain in western Wyoming.
Grand Teton National Park rangers flew to the scene by
helicopter today (Tuesday) and saw the climbers' bodies. Park
officials say the bodies were NOT recovered because of unsafe
conditions due to falling rocks and unstable snow.
An attempt to retrieve the bodies is planned tomorrow
(Wednesday).
The climbers were reported overdue yesterday (Monday) morning.
Park officials say that the climbers' names will NOT be released
until the identities are confirmed and their next of kin are
notified.
