Rescue workers aboard a snowmobile recover the bodies of six people who died following a sled crash on Mount Cermis, northern Italy, early Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013. Six Russians were killed and two others were injured after their snowmobile slammed into a fence and flipped over into a ditch during a night run down an Italian ski slope. The Russian consul general in Milan, Alexei Parmonov, said on Russian state television that he was in contact with Italian investigators, who he said suspect the crash was caused by excessive speed. They also were checking the possibility of a mechanical malfunction. (AP Photo/Federico Modica)
