Kiwis survive deadly blizzard in Nepal

Three New Zealanders have escaped from a deadly blizzard in Nepal’s Annapurna Ranges. 

At least 29 people have now been confirmed dead, including two Israelis, two Poles and eight Nepalese guides.

Ann Young from Trekking Adventures says her group of three Kiwis and three Americans have escaped through torrential rain.

“They’ve had a 30-hour Jeep journey through landslides and waterfalls and rivers and so on.”

Ann Young expects other tourists in the area to come out later today.
