Footage has emerged of the heart-stopping helicopter rescue of a group of skiers from the Pass of Anterne in the French Alps.

One of the skiers was struggling with a knee injury, and was able to call for help using a mobile phone.

The pilot said the rescuers chose to perform the manoeuvre, known as a “skate support”, because of the weather conditions during the incident, which took place on 2 January.

    Manafort can smile with his honorable smile because he knows Trump won fair and square. Russia did not meddle in American elections, it was live and well represented and fast. The Americans who managed the elections actually did well. The fake news had been trying to find some collusion since 2016 they didnt find any Russian meddling.. However, israel meddling was and is very obvious. Israel not only meddles American election, israel also meddles with American News and Foreign Policy.

    This pilot has brass balls for sure. One tiny error and the copter is a casualty.
