Two Austrian mountain climbers fell to their death Thursday as they were descending Mt. Grosser Oetscher near Lackenhof, authorities said Friday.

A search was started by 21 mountain rescue servicemen on Thursday after relatives said the climbers were overdue, according to police and rescue officials. The search was called off because of a storm.
