Avalanche Misses CdA Lawyer Erbland

A Coeur d’Alene man was climbing Mt. Everest on Thursday when the deadly avalanche hit and killed 12 people.  Pete Erbland’s wife told KREM 2 News that he was training on a lower section of the mountain when the avalanche took place elsewhere on the mountain. The avalanche killed at least 12 Nepalese guides and left four missing. Four survivors were injured badly enough to require airlifting to a hospital in Katmandu. (At 5 tonight), hear from the Coeur d’Alene man’s wife about what happened during the deadliest disaster on the world's highest peak. Tiffany Erbland spoke to her husband on the phone about the disaster. She sent an email to family and friends saying Pete was alright/KREM2. More here. (Facebook photo)
