TAOS, N.M. - The second victim of the avalanche in Taos has passed away according to family.


22-year-old Corey Borg was transferred to UNM Hospital Thursday following the avalanche at Taos Ski Valley. 

A statement released by New Mexico Donor Services said Borg's family would like to thank the Taos Ski Area staff, skiers and volunteers who assisted in the search for their son, and the care given by EMS and helicopter staff. 

He and 26-year-old Matthew Zonghetti were pulled from the snow as volunteers desperately searched for victims. Zonghetti passed away Thursday after being transported to a hospital in Taos. 

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Borg's family. You can find it here.
