Video: Survivors pulled from Italy avalanche

Local media in Italy reported Friday that eight survivors pulled from an avalanche which hit a hotel were recovering from their ordeal.

The ANSA news agency said the first six people found by rescuers included three men, a woman and two children. The remaining two have not yet been identified.

Many people are still feared to have died after an avalanche hit the Rigopiano hotel in Italy's Gran Sasso mountain in the country’s central Abruzzo region on Thursday.

Fabrizio Curcio, Italy's director general of civil protection, had said there were up to 30 people in the Rigopiano hotel at the time of the avalanche.

There have been four confirmed deaths and a number of people remain missing.
