On Sunday, we brought you the story of Elisabeth Malloy, age 43, who was backcountry skiing with a companion in Millcreek Canyon, UT (next to Big Cottonwood Canyon) when she was buried in an avalanche. (Woman Resuscitated After Being Buried In Avalanche) Her companion, Adam Morrey, was able to dig her out of the snow, administer CPR, resuscitate her and called 911. The two where then flown to University Hospital, where she was listed in serious condition.
Yesterday, Elisabeth Malloy and Adam Morrey, held a press conference to share their story hoping it will help other backcountry skiers. Above is a video of their account of the events that transpired.
