Skier's helmet camera captures moment avalanche hits
A skier in the Alps on the Swiss-French border had to be rescued after he and his friends appeared to be struck by an avalanche.
The incident was filmed by a camera strapped to the helmet of a skier in the group.
The footage apparently shows the moments after they were hit, and the efforts to save the 20-year old.
James Mort was reportedly buried under the snow for an hour before being freed.
