From NewTeeVee.com, this video shows a helmet cam video of a skier, avalanche, being buried and amazingly rescued.
The video, posted by Vimeo user Chappy, was captured in April 2008 by a customer on a heli-ski trip in Haines, Alaska. (”Chappy” was snowmobiling nearby that day, he writes on Vimeo, though some of his group rode the same helicopter as the skier caught in the avalanche.) The skier fell 1,500 feet in 20 seconds, but escaped without broken bones. He was saved by his right glove, which flew off as he was falling and led the rest of his group to where he was buried.
Today, the Thunder players and coaches assembled at the Cox Center for media opportunities, interviews and pictures. Tomorrow, the team begins training camp and practice.
OSU didn’t disappoint by blasting Grambling State on the field. The Grambling State band didn’t disappoint either.
Something new for this football season, NewsOK Video is shooting The Oklahoman’s reporters before each OU and OSU game for a video we call “PreGame Snap.”
The idea is to post this video, send out an email, text alert and Twitter alert along with a link to our mobile site. Fans at the game can watch and listen to last minute and any breaking news updates from our sports guys.
