U.S. airmen rescued from Alpine icefields
London, England (UP) –
The German DNB News Agency reported today that a number of U.S. airmen had been rescued from the icefields of the Eastern Alps. They were reported suffering from frostbite and hardly able to move.
An earlier DNB dispatch said 114 U.S. fliers who bailed out in that area were doomed to death in the snow and cold because storms were making it impossible for German Alpine guides to rescue them.
