An incredible helicopter rescue was caught on camera. A skier can be seen wincing in agony with an injured leg on the side of a mountain in the French Alps. A helicopter arrives to whisk him away to safety. The pilot made a remarkable approach, wedging the chopper's nose right into the snow as the landing skids touch the mountainside. The skier was air lifted to a local hospital.
