Spectacular rescue operation with a helicopter in French Alps

A rugged tourist at the knee had to be recovered by the mountain gendarmerie helicopter. And the pilot maneuver made him famous on the internet.

In order to get closer to the wounded, the helicopter leaned forward with the snow in the snow, while the propeller shattered the shanty from the slope that had been dangerously approaching.

But the pilot said the maneuver he performed was not a rare one in his job. And that among the first things the gendarmes who save people on the mountain learn, it is learning to recover the victims safely.
