Freeskier survived avalanche with ABS Airbag

Freeskier Aymar Navarro was at a film shoot in the Spanish Pyrenees when he suddenly triggered a massive avalanche: With his avalanche airbag the freerider survived.

A camera team around Nil Torremocha from bumpyfilms.com was supposed to capture Freeski material for a TV commercial for a car brand. The conditions seemed to be perfect when spanish fresskier Aymar Navarro began his descent from top of 2,802-meter high Tuc de Barloguera.

The camera crew filmed his ride from the helicopter flying above him when suddenly the snow started to move and Aymar was caught by a massive avalanche. The 24-year old survived the accident thanks to his avalanche airbag unscathed except for a few scratches.
