Man survives avalanche in Colorado
EAST VAIL, CO -- A close call for a man skiing in Colorado.
He was swept up in an avalanche and buried up to his neck in snow. The avalanche dragged him face first, downhill, and over a 20-foot cliff.
His brother raced down hill as fast as he could, jumping over the same cliff.
He found his brother buried head deep.
"Even though I could breathe, I was still very panicky and freaked out because i just couldn't move,” said the skier, Edwin LaMair.
“It was just like being cemented in place with just your face above."
It only took a few minutes to dig out LaMair. Amazingly, he only suffered minor injuries.
