Two Austrians killed in French Alps glider crash: official
Two Austrians -- a man in his fifties and a teenager -- died today when their glider crashed to the ground in the Champsaur valley in the southern French Alps, sources said.
Two rescuers and a doctor were sent to the scene, but the exact circumstances of the accident were not yet known.
The accident happened at a place called Roche Rousse, at an altitude of 2,515 metres (8,280 feet), the local official told AFP.
The valley, near Grenoble, is famed for its unspoilt farmland crisscrossed by hedgerows and rural residents who still make their living from making cheese and other regional delicacies.
