Amazing helicopter rescue in the French Alps

Dramatic footage was captured of a helicopter rescue in the French Alps. A man had injured his knee while on a ski trip. A helicopter team was called to the scene and the video captured the amazing rescue by the pilot and crew. As can be seen, the helicopter pilot planted his aircraft’s right landing skid into the snow, allowing three rescue team members to climb out and treat the man, known only as Bruno. They fitted a leg brace before the helicopter once again performed the daring feat.
