Alpine Angst Swiss Valley Braces For Massive Glacier Break

A chunk of ice the size of 12 football fields is in danger of breaking off a Swiss glacier. If that happens, the fallen ice could melt, forming a reservoir that could send a flood rushing into the valley below. But officials in the community insist there is nothing to fear.
The glacier is located below the Jungfrau peak, shown here, in the Bernese Alps.
