lucky to be alive: February 2011 Archives


Stefan Ager had climbed to the top of a mountain and was just planning his route his route back down, when he lost his footing and ended up taking an altogether different trip.

Footage shot from his helmet cam shows that after making it to the top he celebrated by taking a look around, capturing a clip of himself and putting his skis on.

But as the skier clipped himself into the skis, he tripped backwards and tumbled down the rocky-looking mountain.

After the 15 second fall, Ager let out an audible gasp of pain before looking up at the route he had just fallen. Amazingly he escaped unscathed… we've got bruises just from watching it.

Just because you can walk around while playing a game on your PSP or Nintendo DS doesn't mean you should… as this young lad recently found out.

The boy had been playing on his Sony PSP as he walked along the platform at a subway station in Milan when he became distracted by his game.

He was so engrossed in the action on the screen, he didn't even notice he was walking off the edge of the platform and fell onto the track below.

Luckily help was at hand in the form of an off-duty police officer who leapt into action and onto the track, lifting the boy out of the way of oncoming trains.

As the pair got back onto the platform other commuters cheered… well if it had hit him it would have caused delays.
