Officials say a huge block of snow fell from a roof and killed a mother and her 7-year-old son, burying the two just feet from the front door of their Northern California mountain condo.

Rescuers had searched the nearby Kirkwood Ski Resort for hours because the two had boarded a lift that afternoon.
