A gripping scene in a rocky alpine-like setting: two older men balancing themselves by means of their boots and their alpenstocks, and behind them several other persons (including a young woman with hands clasped) -- all focusing on the body of a man on the rocks just below them. His legs can be seen, as well as the butt of a rifle and a hand clutching at the rock. (Virginia K. Anderson 01/31/94)
