A very close call

A few days back we had a very close call at my work place, the Bobbie Burns. One of our guests got cought in a class 2 avalanche, and ended up buried 3 meters under the surface. Although there is very little chance of survival with such a burial depth, we managed to dig him out in approx. 10 minutes. By the time I reached his head he was unconcious at not breathing. By the time we cleared his chest he started to breathe on his own and regained his conciousness shortly after. Needless to say that we were all very happy about his survival, but also pretty shaken up by the incident. Dispite all the efforts of keeping everybody safe in such a terrible Winter, we got schooled by nature once again. Play safe everybody and celebrate life!
