Winter can be a wonderful time of year.  The beauty and fun of new snow, skiing, hot chocolate and the rush of a cold breeze are all positives of the season for many. However, as most New England residents know, snow also has its downsides: black ice, shoveling, increased car accidents, and more personal injuries. Snow may appear to be light or non-problematic, but it can add hundreds and thousands of pounds to the top of a structure, and can be severely harmful under certain circumstances. One tragic example of such a circumstance occurred in Island Park, Idaho when a group of three young girls were playing in the snow outside a cabin.

The girls, the youngest of which was two-years-old and the other two that were seven-years-old, were suddenly buried by seven feet of heavy snow that slid off the roof of the cabin.  According to eastidahonews.com, it took neighbors and family members nearly thirty minutes to dig all three girls out, all of whom were unconscious by that time.All three children were flown to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.  While the two seven-year-olds were able to make a full recovery, the youngest girl tragically died as a result of being buried by the snow.
