Updated on 31 January, 2019 at 12:15 pm By

In the past there have been a string of tragedies in the French Alps for skiers. Around 30 people die each year in deadly avalanches in the French Alps, as the terrain turn more risky especially during winter. Each year between 500 and 1,500 avalanches are recorded in the French Alps. Heavy snowfall and bad weather conditions can sometime make it difficult for the rescue operations. Something similar happened with a young man named Bruno who had injured his knee during a ski trip near the Anterne Pass. Bruno had seriously injured his leg, and he could only be evacuated by air.

The team (with which Bruno was skiing) was able to call the emergency services despite being well above cloud level. Soon after the message was received, the Peloton de Gendarmerie de Haute Montagne (French Mountain Police) were dispatched to the Anterne, which is roughly 6,5000 feet above Passy, France.

 

 

A adrenaline pumping video, posted on Facebook by Nicolas Derely, showed a helicopter partially landing n a vertical mountainside in the French Alps, with the aircraft’s nose and blades just centimetres from the snow.

The pilot was able to let three members of the rescue team to disembark and treat the injured man.
