Dramatic rescue of injured skier in French Alps
11 January 2019, 06:46 | Glen Norman
Using what the BBC calls a "dramatic" helicopter maneuver, rescuers descended on a mountain in the French Alps last week to rescue an injured skier, and the video is indeed "heart-stopping".
The man who was being rescued became exhausted while skiing and fell over, injuring himself, CNN reported.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 launched in China; prices start Rs 10,000
Initially introduced in Blue, Twilight Gold and Black, the Redmi Note 7 start from CNY999, but this is for the 3/32 GB variant. Today, Xiaomi's Redmi Note 6 received a permanent price cut for both its 3GB RAM and 32GB storage & 4GB RAM and 64GB models .
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.
