Rapid response may have saved his life

A group of Spanish skiers with 2 guides set off an avalanche and one person was buried. He was under the snow for between 15 and 30 minutes. He was dug out and given emergency first aid by the guides, including our Jean Marc. The doctors who came in by helicopter were magnificent. They restarted his heart into a stable rhythm and got him off the mountain in no time.
