An incredible helicopter rescue was caught on camera as a skier in the French Alps needed to be airlifted following a leg injury. 

This skier was left wincing in agony after an accident near the Anterne Pass. 

A helicopter arrived to whisk him away to safety. Video shows how the pilot strategically wedged the chopper's nose right into the snow.
