Mark Salesse : Rescue tech’s body found

The body of a military search-and-rescue technician who died after being buried in deep snow during a training exercise on an Alberta mountain was recovered late Wednesday.

The mother of Sgt. Mark Salesse, Liz Quinn, confirmed the news Wednesday evening.The body of the missing search-and-rescue technician, who was buried in snow on a mountain in Banff National Park, has been recovered.

The 44 year old was training with others when an avalanche swept him off the Polar Circus ice-climbing route and buried him in 4 1/2 meters of snow.

Quinn says that she was hoping for a different outcome, but adds that it’s a relief the recovery mission was a success.

Salesse had survived a fall during training in Colorado in 2011 but shattered his pelvis.
