Rescuers are beginning to search through a wreckage of boulders for the body of five hikers who were killed in a rockslide in Colorado.

The rockslide yesterday morning crashed down on a popular trail that offers views of Agnes Vaille falls and the Chalk Creek Canyon.

It killed five hikers and injured one, who was airlifted to a Denver hospital, according to the Associated Press.

Rescuers were unable to begin their search on Monday because conditions were still considered too unstable.
