Diagnosis or cause of accident
Adams and Sullivan were a little in advance of their companions, and were shovelling a lot of loose stuff away. There was apparently nothing that indicated impending danger. Just then, however, there was a rumbling noise, and Collopy and the Austrian were horrified to see a big boulder break away and carry with it their two mates, William ADAMS and Benjamin SULLIVAN.
