Recovery Efforts Resume in Washington State Ice Cave Collapse

An official said, rescue workers were preparing on Tuesday to recover the body of a woman killed in the partial collapse of an ice cave in Washington state that also injured five others, but the cavern was too dangerous to enter. The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office said two men and a woman were airlifted on Monday from the Big Four Ice Caves near Granite Falls, some 40 miles north of Seattle, to nearby hospitals with serious injuries. Officials had earlier warned that the caves were too treacherous to explore due to unseasonably warm weather.
