  • British skier dies in French Alps while skiing off-piste

    Golocal247.com news

    A British skier has died in the French Alps after he and two friends plunged hundreds of feet from a ridge while skiing off piste. In a separate incident, a 13-year-old boy died when both he and his brother fell off a cliff after they got lost while skiing with their family. The Briton, who has not been named, was with two friends in the resort of Oz-en-Oisans on Saturday when they decided to leave the marked slopes. Police said that all three men were in their 20s and were experienced skiers. “They were following ski tracks but they got lost when the tracks came to an end,” a spokesman for the gendarme mountain rescue unit, based in nearby Grenoble, told the Telegraph. “They saw a marked slope in the distance and were trying to get to that. But the area they had to go through was very unstable, made up of ridges and a mixture of snow and rocks,” he said. All three ended up falling, but not at the same time. The man who died fell somewhere between 100 and 200 metres, said the officer. “It looks like he died instantly. His body rolled down the ridge, bashing off rocks several times before it came to a halt,” said the spokesman. One of two other skiiers emerged unscathed from his fall, while the other suffered minor injuries. They were later taken to safety by a gendarme mountain rescue team. Police did not give the men’s names. In a separate incident, a 13-year-old French boy was found dead at the foot of a cliff after both he and his brother - who survived - fell from the precipice the night before after getting lost while skiing with their family in Avoriaz. The boys had wandered off piste on Saturday and, as night fell, ended up in a forest whose trees concealed the 490-foot cliff which they fell off. The younger brother, aged 10, spent the night in sub-zero temperatures beside his dead brother at the foot of the cliff. Rescuers eventually found the boys at dawn on Sunday. The younger brother was said to be be injured but in a stable condition. Earlier this week, a young British skier was killed after smashing into a tree at Les Diablerets, a Swiss ski resort, on the edge of a piste while on holiday with his family.

  • Florida governor launches inquiry into Broward County sheriffs amid calls for resignation following Parkland shooting failures

    Golocal247.com news

    The sheriff of Broward County is facing mounting calls for his resignation following a series of failures before and during the Parkland school shooting, with the governor of Florida announcing on Sunday he was launching an inquiry. Rick Scott, the Republican governor of the state, said serious questions had been raised about the sheriff’s office’s actions. "I have asked for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to immediately investigate the law enforcement response and will continue to review this matter as more facts come out,” he said. “There must be an independent investigation and that is why I asked the FDLE Commissioner to immediately start this process.” Last week it emerged that an armed sheriff’s deputy, Scot Peterson, was on the campus of Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school when Nikolas Cruz opened fire – but he did not enter the building. “He’s the only one with a gun, and a bulletproof vest, and he did nothing,” said Brandon Huff, a student at the school. Mr Peterson has resigned. Students evacuated from the school on Valentine's Day Some reports suggested there were three other deputies outside the school when Coral Springs police arrived – but Scott Israel, sheriff of Broward County, denied that. “We will investigate every action of the deputies, and their superiors,” said Mr Israel. “It’s a voluminous investigation. We’re taking hundreds and hundreds of statements. “While the killer was on campus, there was one armed person within the proximity of that school  -and that was Peterson.” Deputies received at least 18 calls regarding Cruz prior to the Valentine’s Day shooting, which killed 17 people. Mr Israel said 16 of those calls were handled “as they should have been”, but the remaining two are being investigated. “I can only take responsibility for what I knew of,” said Mr Israel. “I’ve shown amazing leadership. These deputies received the training they needed. “In the five years I’ve been sheriff we’ve taken the Broward sheriff’s office to a new level. At this point one person didn’t do as he should, and it makes me sick to my stomach.” Rick Scott, governor of Florida, with, on his right, Scott Israel, sheriff of Broward County Seventy four members of the Florida House have called on Mr Scott to suspend Mr Israel, including the speaker of the House, Richard Corcoran. Bill Hager, a Republican state politician for Boca Raton, went further, calling for Mr Israel to be fired. He wrote a letter to Mr Scott on Saturday, urging him to relieve Mr Israel from his duties for “neglect of duty and incompetence". Mr Hager also cited reports that there were "23 calls to the Broward Sheriff’s Office relating to Nikolas Cruz and his home, as well as 39 visits by Broward Sheriff Deputies.” He continued: “The sheriff was fully aware of the threat this individual presented to his community and chose to ignore it.” But Mr Israel hit back, describing Mr Hager’s letter as riddled with false accusations. “It was a shameful, politically-motivated letter and I will not resign,” he said.

    By Matt Spetalnick, Phil Stewart and David Brunnstrom WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration and key Asian allies are preparing to expand interceptions of ships suspected of violating sanctions on North Korea, a plan that could include deploying U.S. Coast Guard forces to stop and search vessels in Asia-Pacific waters, senior U.S. officials said. Washington has been talking to regional partners, including Japan, South Korea, Australia and Singapore, about coordinating a stepped-up crackdown that would go further than ever before in an attempt to squeeze Pyongyang's use of seagoing trade to feed its nuclear missile program, several officials told Reuters. While suspect ships have been intercepted before, the emerging strategy would expand the scope of such operations but stop short of imposing a naval blockade on North Korea.
