ITALY — Rescue: A rescue helicopter hovered over the Punta Rocca glacier near Canazei, in the Italian Alps, on Monday, a day after a huge chunk of the glacier broke loose, sending an avalanche of ice, snow, and rocks onto hikers. Rescuers said conditions downslope from the glacier, which had been melting for decades, were still too unstable to immediately send rescuers and dogs into the area to look for others buried under tons of debris.
