Talk about scary..
This Pakistani mountain guide was lucky to escape an avalanche in Verbier, Switzerland.
“Even when you are with the best locals, the mountain can always surprise you!!! The Airbag was not necessary but safety counts above all in the mountain!!! The lesson is that avalanches are often bigger than we imagine and that safety counts before pleasure and performance…”

An ice axe, airbag, and some good reflexes likely saved his life in this case.
