Heart-stopping footage has emerged of the moments a father rescued his son from suffocating in the snow in what would have been a horrific skiing accident.
Skier, Winston Goss was having fun with his son Ethan in the Brunage Mountain backcountry, about 100 miles north of Boise, Idaho earlier his year.
However, during a run, Ethan got a little close to one of the trees, and found himself burried headfirst in deep snow. Fortunately, Ethan’s dad was higher up the mountain, and close enough to hear his son’s wild screams as the snow around him moved in, trapping him in position.
In what must have ben a terrifying experience for both parties, Winston acted quickly, getting to his son in seconds, and rescuing him from the snow. The footage shows that Ethan wasn’t buried very deeply, yet the snow around him was sufficient to prevent himself from getting free.
