How Disney's 'Frozen' Helped to Solve a 62-Year-Old Case


Disney's Frozen has become a favorite movie for our children, but who would of thought the movie would help close a 62-year-old case.

The incident took place in Russia back in 1959, where nine skilled hikers were found dead, with their tents ripped open and their bodies scattered around the campsite.

And thanks to the help of Frozen's animation code Gaume was able to create a scenario of an avalanche and how it could cause such gruesome injuries found on the victims' bodies.
