Konrad Steffen, director of the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research (WSL), was working near Ilulissat on Saturday when he was reported missing, police said.
A rescue operation was launched, but ultimately abandoned without the 68-year-old researchers body being found.
We have found signs that the person fell through a crack in the glacier, police spokesman Brian Thomsen told local newspaper Sermitsiaq.
An accident has probably occurred and it is highly probable that the person in question has passed away, Thomsen added.
Fellow scientist Kathy Riklin said it seemed a snow bridge had collapsed under Steffen, causing him to plummet into the crevasse, Agence France-Presse reported.

Another Covid death..................../s
That sounds like that Freeper thread from the other day where Moses’ enemies were swallowed up by the earth.

Glacier hiking is a lot like trying to walk on water.
Tough to pull off for an extended time. [see foot only water skiing...]
I admit: I LOL’d
Even when justice fails, gravity still works.
The Rule of Law still predominates in some locales.
What are the odds?
I recall doctors being pushed off of bridges after the 2001 anthrax attacks (which PRE-DATED the 9-11 attacks!)
Hillary would say she came and saw and well he died! ha ha ha
Gravity outranks climate...
Huh. Same thing happened in the Bible when some people messed with God.
Gravity. It’s not just a good idea, it’s the law!
