Waterloo woman dies hiking in Italy
A Waterloo woman has died while hiking on New Year's Day near the Italian-Austrian border.
Chelsea Rebecca Alvarez reportedly slipped off a path and fell onto rocks in a valley below.
The 24-year-old died instantly and rescue teams have recovered her body.
Alvarez had moved to Italy about six months ago with her fiance, Colin Behenna, a former Ontario Hockey League player who signed a deal to play for the Sterzing Broncos team based in northern Italy.
Yesterday, the team issued a statement expressing its condolences to Behenna and Alvarez's family and noted that Behenna was travelling back to Canada with his fiancee's family.
