Live footage of amazing escape of skier buried by avalanche in Alaska

Haines, Alaska: a skier is overtaken by an avalanche during his descend which was filmed by his helmet camera. He was buried under the snow for 4 minutes and 28 seconds untill the guide and the other skiers got to him. The skier was localized pretty fast due to one of his gloves that remained at the surface and indicated the burial place. Usually the estimated survival time under the snow is about 45 minutes.
