South Korean Ski Resort Collapses Killing At Least 4 Trapping Dozens

The auditorium of a popular ski resort in South Korea collapsed under the weight of the snow piling on its roof. Dozens of students from the Busan University were trapped under the roof structure, and it has been reported that at least four have already been confirmed dead from the accident. Roughly 1,000 students from the Busan University of Foreign Studies were at the resort as part of their curriculum.

426px-North_Gyeongsang-Gyeongju.svgBad weather has been hitting this part of South Korea near Gyeongju, and in particular heavy snowfall has been occurring all week long. Even though there may be hundreds of students trapped under the roof and debris, the bad weather has slowed rescue efforts to some extent. Roads leading up the mountain to the resort have proven difficult for rescue workers to traverse, but despite difficulties many arrived on the scene with equipment to help free some of the trapped students.

This event made national headlines in South Korea, as many worried that the heavy snowfall may cause similar disasters elsewhere in the area. In the past there have been building collapses due to excessive snowfall, leading to the deaths of many innocent people.

Scenes from the accident depict more than just a roof collapse. The building remains toppled over, with only a portion of one wall still standing, though the integrity is not sound. Despite an estimated 450 college students being in the building at the time of the collapse, the situation could have been much worse. Many of the students were able to flee the building during the collapse, or shortly after. With only a few dozen to a hundred or so students still trapped, that number is relatively light given the circumstances. Investigators are going to conduct an investigation to see if the cause of the collapse was indeed caused by heavy snowfall, or if there was some foul play at hand that caused the tragedy.
