  • Watch Helicopter pilot puts rotor within inches of a mountain to rescue skier in the Alps

Dramatic footage of a helicopter partially landing on a mountain side shows the incredible moment a skier was rescued from the French Alps.

The skiers encountered trouble this week 7,200 feet above seal level, in the Pass of Anterne as snow conditions worsened.

Of course, some may argue this stunt placed the helicopter crew and other skiers at unnecessary risk, but with Tauziet now safely recovering from his injuries, it's hard to argue with results.

The video shows the pilot balancing the helicopter with the blades still turning to allow a rescuer to climb out.

The chopper's blades come dangerously close to the mountainside, as it hovers inches from the stranded skier, so close that the aircraft's nose nearly appears to swallow the figure lying in the snow.

"It gained us time because the weather in the mountain were extremely changeable", Chamonix Gendarme pilot Lt. Jean-Francois Martin said in a report by The Independent.

First responders jumped out and wrapped the skier's knee before airlifting him to safety.
