Two hikers died, and eight others were injured after a landslide struck a scenic gorge in southern Austria, Report says, citing RIA Novosti.
The injured hikers were taken to safety by mountain rescue teams, with one said to have sustained severe injuries.
Several helicopters were used in the rescue operation, hampered by a lack of phone reception in the remote gorge.
The Baerenschutz gorge in the southern state of Styria, which usually attracts 40,000 visitors a year, has now been closed off, and police have opened an investigation.
