Snowboarder films horrific accident on the slopes

We get sent all sorts of videos these days, but this was the first in a while that really put the willies up us. Reader Rob Dowling sent us this video he shot on a GoPro during a trip abroad with his dad. During a race with the old man, Rob realises something’s up and goes looking for him. Give it a watch, but be warned: it’s not pretty…

Fortunately there’s a happy ending, but it really can’t have been much of a picnic for Rob at the time, seeing what he saw. It’s little wonder this video has had more than 100,000 views on YouTube – gnarly!
