Google Assistant comes to Maps for Android, iOS
Google Assistant might be pretty much a standard option for Android phones , but Google found another way to extend its reach. There was a lot announced over the past week at CES 2019 , and we've rounded up all of the best news from CES down below.
The man, named as Bruno, had become exhausted and suffered an agonising fall.
Video shows the chopper getting incredibly close to the skier, with the aircraft's nose wedging into the snow as it flies within inches of the mountainside.
French mountain police are seen helping the injured skier after landing, before hoisting him into a helicopter. Tauziet dislocated his knee at high elevation, with some 1,200 feet of icy terrain between his ski crew and any level ground.
The chopper's blades come dangerously close to the mountainside, as it hovers inches from the stranded skier, so close that the aircraft's nose nearly appears to swallow the figure lying in the snow. A rope is dropped down from the helicopter to bring two rescue workers, who had been tending to Bruno's leg, back up.
