Mar. 26, 1989
SIRDAL, Norway (AP) _ A girl found alive 3 1/2 hours after her family's mountain cabin was buried by an avalanche has died, police said Sunday.
The girl, Rebecca Gloppen, 4, was one of six people who were rescued Saturday from the cabin 30 miles east of Stavanger, police said.
A seventh person, Berit Kristensen, 35, was found dead at the scene. Rebecca died Saturday night at Stavanger Central Hospital, officials said.
The survivors, including an infant and two other children, were located quickly and were not seriously hurt, said police spokesman Leif Helge Eskeland.
The people were on an Easter skiing vacation when the first avalanche ever to hit the popular Hunnedalen cross-country ski area destroyed their cabin and damaged another, the Norwegian news agency, NTB, reported.
