    3 buried, 1 killed (5 y/o girl) in roofalanche - Purgatory, CO

    A 5-year-old girl from Scottsdale, Arizona, died from asphyxiation after being buried by snow that slid from a roof at a multifamily housing unit near the base of Purgatory Resort... The slide occurred about 5:30 p.m. March 16 at a condo or townhome development along Sheol Street south of the main Purgatory lodge.

    The slide also buried the girl’s father and brother, age 7. All three were taken to Mercy Hospital in Durango before being flown to a Denver-area hospital

    The girl was buried for 19 minutes before she could be rescued, said La Plata County Coroner Jann Smith. The brother and the father got out of the snow much sooner but couldn’t get to the girl, she said.

    “She (the girl) was not breathing when they got her out, but en route to the hospital they got her breathing again and that’s when they sent her to Children’s (Hospital in Aurora), but she didn’t make it,” Smith said.

    The brother was also in critical condition when he was taken to Children’s Hospital, and the father was in serious or critical condition...

    Hanks was unsure if the snow slid from a two-story roofline or from a slightly lower overhang. She said the family was at ground level when the snow hit.
