"Christmas Miracle", it is no different, because the boy had few chances. The skier was actually buried under the snow for five hours, but he was rescued in time.
The skier, who was buried under the snow for five hours, was rescued and this event is already being called a “Christmas miracle'', Ukr.Media informs.
A 26-year-old skiing in Austria's Schladminger Tauern mountain range became the subject of a major search and rescue operation when he failed to return home.
Mountain rescuers searched the area and climbed more than 610 meters in an attempt to find it. When the boy was finally found, he was buried under the snow at a depth of one meter.
Incredibly, the skier managed to hold on for five hours, continuously moving his muscles in an attempt to maintain blood flow.
The rescue is made even more remarkable by the fact that finding someone alive in the snow after so long is something that usually only happens once every 20 years.
-" He was responsible for staying alive, rescuers said. This is the “Christmas miracle''.-
The avalanche that buried the man was one of several that hit the region in recent weeks.
