Renowned Climber Survives Avalanche That Killed Girlfriend, Then Kills Himself The Next Day

A renowned climber committed suicide the day after an avalanche took the life of his girlfriend. According to the NY Daily News, 27-year-old Hayden Kennedy and his girlfriend, 23-year-old, Inge Perkins, were skiing at Imp Peak in Bozeman, Montana, on Saturday. They triggered an avalanche that buried Kennedy three feet under the avalanche and left Perkins missing.
