A crack in the ice on the frozen lake of St Moritz has proved fatal following an accident at the annual White Turf International Horse Races.

On Sunday, a leading horse stumbled, causing two others to fall as well – one of whom was so badly hurt that he had to be put down on site. His jockey was airlifted and placed in intensive care; the man’s injuries are not life-threatening. White Turfexternal link officials cancelled the remaining races in the interest of safety.
