Nepal quake avalanche survivor: There was nowhere to run

A survivor of the devastating avalanche that hit Mount Everest base camp after the Nepal earthquake has described the moment the snow hit.

"It was like 4,000 feet of snow just kind of coming and there's nowhere to run," said documentary filmmaker Michael Churton.

He explained that people were "pushed" by the snow - and one woman was still missing from his group.
