Video: Airbag saves snowboarder from avalanche

Take a look at this amazing video of snowboarder Michelle Hytner escaping an avalanche by deploying an airbag designed to allow the boarder to “float” over the snow during a slide. Pretty amazing stuff.

Here is a link from CNN with more on the story and an interview with Hytner.
