Heavy snowfall engulfed the community of Asturias in Spain over the weekend, January 2 and 3, 2021, trapping several people and leaving one worker dead, while another is still missing.

Severe snowfall blanketed Leon in Asturias, prompting the Spanish civil guards and emergency services to work throughout the weekend to rescue trapped people.

A snow removal machine and two workers were deployed to the scene, but the men were caught in a second snowfall. One of the workers was retrieved dead, while another remains missing, according to authorities.

Footage released by civil guards showed rescue teams trying to access stranded vehicles under the snow. Four people were rescued, as well as one minor.

Several portions of central and southeast Spain have been engulfed in snow since the early hours of the new year.
