Helicopter accidentally drops gas can on active ski slope.
Helicopter accidentally drops gas can on active ski slope.

As the summer months roll on I find myself going back through all the wild stuff that went down this winter in the world of skiing and came upon this odd incident from Italy back in February that could have ended tragically. This footage from the slopes Aprica Ski Resort in northern Italy where a helicopter flying overhead accidentally dropped a propane filled cylinder on an active trail where it crashed down in a puff of snow and went careening into the paths of multiple skiers. Thankfully no injuries were reported but it very nearly hit a few people on the way down.
