Footage obtained by Metro News shows the slide victim pull his airbag then frantically try to hold on to multiple branches before actually getting a grip. This video should serve as a proper reminder that airbags are useful but not as useful as the ability to reach out and grab a life saving branch mid-slide. Lucky!
