Buried Alive - Avalanche Accident Caught On Helmet Camera

Buried Alive - Avalanche Accident Caught On Helmet Camera

image/video source

This is the footage of me getting buried in an avalanche in Verbier, Switzerland on the 28th of february in 2011. My friends spotted and excavated me within five minutes even though I was buried at a depth of between 1.5-2 metres. Luckily I was wearing the right equipment and managed to create an air pocket in front of my mouth by holding my hands in front of my face when the avalanche stopped moving. - [filed under: gopro]
