Avalanche Swallows Snowboarder In Terrifying Video

SKI.gif

AVALANCHE! The terrifying video below captures the moment that Sorin-Alexandru Radu, a winter sports instructor from Bucharest, triggered an enormous snow-slide. 

Radu was negotiating an off-piste ridge in the Parâng Mountains, a range of the Southern Carpathians in Romania, when a crack opened up under his snowboard. 

The video, captured by his head-mounted GoPro camera, shows how a gentle afternoon’s boarding turned into a full-on near-death experience. Forget brown trousers time, this is enough to give you sloppy salopettes.

According to the Daily Mail, the Romanian survived. It’s not yet clear whether he sustained any injuries.

Turns out GoPro cameras have a use other than just showing off your gnarly moves on YouTube…
