    Switzerland--Couple missing for 72 years found frozen in glacier 7/20/17

    A Swiss couple has been found on a shrinking glacier Tuesday — about 72 years after going to milk cows in the Alps, according to reports.

    Local police said the couple’s bodies and identity papers were discovered near a ski lift in southern Switzerland at an altitude of 8,600 feet.

    “Their bodies were lying near each other,” said Bernhard Tschannen, director of Glacier 3000, which operates the ski lift. “They were perfectly preserved in the glacier.”

    The couple was wearing World War II-era clothes and their belongings — a backpack, bottle, book and a watch — also were preserved.

    DNA testing will be conducted to confirm their identities.

    The World Has Gone Mad.

    Thanks for this story Trigger, what a truly amazing story. At least the daughter found out what happened to her parents. Absolutely amazing story.
