13-year-old dies in French Alps skiing accident

A 13-year-old boy died after falling from a cliff in the French Alps, and his 10-year-old brother survived the plunge, authorities said.

The local police said searches overnight by rescue officers led to discovering the children early Sunday at the foot of a nearly 500-foot cliff in a forest at the Avoriaz ski resort.

According to local media, the childrens father called police Saturday afternoon after the brothers, who were skiing alone, failed to show up.
