Heart-stopping rescue in the French Alps

Created: Thursday, 10 January 2019 Written by Katherine O`Neill

A group of skiers in the Pass of Anterne in the French Alps were rescued by helicopter and the footage was caught on camera. Due to weather conditions the rescuers had to perform a manouevre called a "skate support" involving tipping the nose down to touch the side of the mountain.

I think it's safe to say, the French services are certianly equipped to handle anything in all conditions. Hats off to the Chamonix Gendarmerie.
