Dramatic Video Shows Man Rescue Skier Buried Under Snow On Remote Track
March 9, 2020
A helmet cam captured the intense moment a skier in the French Alps rescued a 19-year-old woman who was trapped headfirst under a thick blanket of snow.
Will Field, 23, came across the woman after he spotted her legs poking out from the snow on a remote rarely-used track.
He rushed to her side and worked around her flailing legs to dig her out in a race against time.
"I went down the slope and saw legs sticking out from under the snow," Field told The Sun. "She was completely stuck and could not move. She could breathe but there's only so much oxygen under there."
The buried skier was part of a group of five resort workers who were enjoying some down time out on the slopes.
Will said she went ahead of the group but tripped, was catapulted from her shoe locks and buried under masses of snow.
"I was trying to wiggle my arms but I could not get out," the woman said. "The next thing I knew Will came up to me and started digging. I was relieved but I started to panic. I have no idea what I'd have done if he wasn't there to help."
The dramatic rescue was all caught on Field's helmet camera. He told The Sun his friend suffered no major injuries.
