Police say two people have been found alive after the avalanche in Papua New Guinean snow mountains killed three people.
The three were found at a remote camp in the rugged snow and ice landscape, according to police spokesman Nairobi Tsejana.
Police said the man and woman were in their 20s and 25s.
Police say the avalanche happened at about 4 p.m. local time on Wednesday (local time).
The three people, who were not identified, were believed to have been buried by the avalanche, he said.
No injuries were reported, Tseju said.
He did not specify the location of the camp.
Police have not said how the avalanche was triggered.
The country’s snow season ends on Friday, with heavy snow falling from February through April.
The incident comes as the world braces for the arrival of the first of three large polar bears in the Pacific Ocean, set to arrive in Hawaii on Thursday.
The first polar bear, dubbed “Polarbear,” is set to join the Arctic Circle this week, bringing with it the first mass migration of polar bears from the Arctic northward since 1996.
