Rescue workers recover the bodies of six people who died following a sled crash on Mount Cermis, northern Italy, early Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013. Six Russians were killed and two others were injured late Friday after their snowmobile slammed into a fence and flipped over into a ditch during a night run down an Italian ski slope. The Russian consul general in Milan, Alexei Parmonov, said on Russian state television that he was in contact with Italian investigators, who he said suspect the crash was caused by excessive speed. They also were checking the possibility of a mechanical malfunction. In 1998, a U.S. Marine jet, flying low on a training run from a nearby air base, accidently sliced a ski gondola's cable on Mount Cermis, sending the cable car crashing to the ground and claiming 20 lives.
