VIENNA (AP) — The Netherlands' royal information service says Prince Johan Friso remains in stable but life-threatening condition two days after he was buried by an avalanche in the Austrian Alps.

The 43-year-old was rushed to the intensive care unit of Innsbruck's main hospital Friday after he was rescued from the snow. He had been skiing off marked trails in the westernmost Lech winter sports region.
