Terrifying Helmet Camera Footage Captures When Skier Saves His Friend Covered By Avalanche

Skiing is always a somewhat dangerous sport, but it can become deadly when an avalanche is involved. Three friends decided to go skiing on the Swiss Alps even after a meter of snow had just fallen and the avalanche warning was high.  

Finally, the inevitable occurred, and an avalanche covered the skiers with snow. Daniel, who had a helmet camera rolling, was luckily only pushed down by the snow. That was when he and Andrew realized their friend James was missing. 

By a stroke of luck, James had raised his hand holding his ski pole up the moment he was smothered by the snow. His friends only found him in time because they saw the tip of the ski pole poking out of the snow.

James wrote about the chilling ordeal here

Wolverines have a bad reputation as being violent beasts, most likely as a result of being associated with Wolverine the X-Man. Of course they are wild animals, but wolverines are actually fantastic search and rescue animals, as portrayed by Jasper the wolverine. 

To demonstrate this helpful characteristic, Casey was covered in a snow to mimic a body trapped under an avalanche. Amazingly, Jasper quickly digs Casey out and drags him out of the snow to safety. 

The Natationl Geographic Wild video is actually 10 months old, but has started to trend recently, appearing on BestOfYouTube, IAmBored, and VideoSift

In much of the world, clearing snow off the roof of one’s home is a winter requirement. The far Eastern European country of Estonia is an example of such a place.

Last winter, Martin Oja recorded a man clearing snow off the roof only for the snow to fall all at once, like a mini-avalanche, and knock the man off the roof. Luckily, he was nearly consumed by the snow which actually broke his fall. 

The video has over 1.2 million views, and is starting to trend again this winter after being featured by DailyPicks
