Three Czech skiers inadvertently triggered an avalanche in the Jeseniky Mountains on Saturday and narrowly escaped getting buried alive under the snow. They were swept down the slope and badly battered but managed to help each other and call the rescue service. One of them is in serious condition, the other two escaped with lighter injuries. The group of young men – aged 15 to 20 - had left the marked trails and wondered into an off-limits area.
