Daily Talker: Cambridge Family Survives Avalanche

A Cambridge father is defending his decision to take his two children climbing on Western Europe’s highest mountain, after the group survived an avalanche.

Patrick Sweeney, his 11-year-old daughter Shannon and his 9-year-old son Patrick, were a few thousand feet from reaching the summit two weeks ago in an area locals call the “Corridor of Death”, when the family heard a hissing noise.
