Chinese tourist killed by rock fall - possibly triggered by jets
A 42 year old Chinese tourist was killed on the Eiger after being struck by a falling rock. Witnesses say the rock fall seemed to have been triggered by the passing to two Swiss Air Force fighter jets.
The accident happened last week.
Researchers at the Snow and Avalanche Institute told the press it is possible jets could trigger a rock fall. But the Air Force says there was only one propeller driven plane nearby at the time of the accident.
Bern cantonal police are investigating.
