Not surprising actually. He was always one to go with the floe.

Alright, stop!
Collaborate and listen.
Italian Ice is in a frozen condition
Glacier... spells the end of my life, see?
Vortex on the polar region I'm freezy!
Will it ever stop? Yo, I dunno.
Tundra's all go...with the floe!

Authorities say the body would be retrieved later. They didn't say by whom.

But really? If a big chunk of glacier falls on you, is there much left to pick up?

/RIP extreme vacation dude.

They can have the body back when the glacier is done with it.

Sarah Palin just admitted witnessing the tragedy from her home.

I wonder if they verified that he is actually dead or if they just assumed nobody could live through that and left him there...?

He's Italian, so there's no way he could have been Captain America.

911 Operator: "Are you sure he's dead?"

Caller: "Wait, hold on." (we hear footsteps, then a shotgun blast) "Yep, he is now."

They look slow, but they're surprisingly quick when aroused.  And, don't ever try to climb a tree to escape one.

Went to Alaska on a cruise.  While there I took a tour of a glacier and got pretty close to where it broke apart into a lake. I wanted to get right up to the face but was blocked by a fast flowing stream.  As I was looking for a safe place to cross a piece about the size of a piano broke off and fell with a large crash.  No warning such as cracking noises or anything. I was glad that stream kept me from getting closer.
