Chamonix: British skier warns of dangers off track after digging his son out of a hole | news

When Gillon Campbell lost sight of his son on the slopes of Chamonix, France, he did not initially worry. They had skied off-piste, but the 11-year-old was an expert skier used to covering the main routes.

When Mr. Campbell, the head of a London design agency, reached the bottom of the race, he experienced every parent’s nightmare. His son, Fox, was nowhere to be seen and in fact lay 1.5 meters under the snow after falling into a hole.

It was the beginning of an incredible rescue, in which Mr. Campbell, 44, found his son through a transceiver device and was captured by a video that was digging him.

“It was a beautiful sunny day with fresh snow on the ground,” he recalled.
