Gotthard line with fallen rocks - SBB Swiss Federal Railways          
After a first rock part came down in March, another over 2000 m3 / 70'000 cu ft came down on June 5th and a worker on the SBB line died. On June 18th a rock blasting took place which produced another 2500 m3 of rock falling down the Gotthard line. The trackbed was protected by a tire-mat.
