VERLOT, Wash. (AP) - A person killed after ice caves partially collapsed near Seattle remains buried under debris.

The recovery effort had to be suspended overnight.

The collapse happened Monday, after authorities had warned that the caves were especially dangerous because of warming temperatures.

At least four other people were injured, some with broken pelvises.
