Was a bit surprised when I click on Barstool and saw this as the top post of the day.
Source – Heart-stopping footage shows the moment a skier plummeted into a crevasse, badly injuring his leg. Edouard Bozon’s helmet camera recorded his terrifying situation metres underneath a mountain slope in the French Alps after his friend triggered a small avalanche that sent him flying into the ravine.
Footage captures Edouard, from Lyon, screaming for help from his friend and warning him not to step to the close to the edge in case he sends more snow into the crevasse and buries him. As he yells from the claustrophobic pit, his friend, who is not carrying a climbing rope with him, tries to reach him with his ski poles.
Edouard warns him not to get too close to avoid collapsing the walls of the crevasse, and in horribly claustrophobic conditions, the pair shout instructions to each other to work a way out of the ravine.
I fell in a crevasse while skiing in high mountain around Mont Blanc massif. Check out the first comment to understand our mistakes. Follow my next (happy ending) adventures on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/edbzn
