Photographer: Anatoly Maltsev
Year: September 2002
Location: North Ossetia, Russia
A disloged chunk of ice from the Kolka Glacier turned into a 20-mile-long landslide of ice, rock, and mud down Mount Kazbek. It crashed over a small village in the Karmadon Gorge, where the popular Russian actor Sergei Bodrov Jr. and a film crew happened to be shooting that day. In total, 125 people were buried under 150 feet of ice, snow, and rubble.
