Helicopter pulls off insane move to rescue stranded skier”

This helicopter was dispatched to help an injured skier from the Pass of Anterne in Passy, France, located in the French Alps.

As members of his party watched on, a helicopter from the Peloton de Gendarmerie de Haute Montagne (French Mountain Police) delicately nudged its nose towards the steep slope.

With the helicopter's rotor blades just inches away from smashing into the snow, the skier was winched away to a nearby hospital.

Moments later, the chopper takes off again with the the skier onboard, and heads straight towards the spot where Derely is filming.

Nicolas Derely wrote in a Facebook post that he was with his family skiing on January 2 when his son's friend injured his knee.

The first video was filmed before the dramatic rescue.

Derely posted the video of the helicopter's "incredible act of precision" as the chopper landed on the side of the mountainside.

A second video shows the team tending to Bruno, who winces as they put his leg in a brace.
