Skillful Helicopter Rescue From Mountain Side

An expert helicopter pilot almost brushed a mountainside with his aircraft’s rotor blades as he completed the spectacular rescue of an injured skier. A 19-year-old man injured his knee while skiing in the Anterne pass, in the Giffre mountains of Easter France. The French police helicopter came to his rescue, flying frighteningly close to the mountain side and then partially landing on it as the teen, identified only by the first name Bruno, was dragged on board. The aircraft then repeated the impressive maneuver a second time, partially landing on the steep ground as the rescuers jumped on board too.
