Helicopter crew rescues skier

(NBC) - Video shot in the French Alps shows an incredibly daring helicopter rescue.

A group of skiers called for help after a member of their party became injured.

Mountain police responded to the top of the mountain, roughly 6,500 feet above Passy, France.

With amazing precision, the pilot was able to hover mere inches from the mountainside.

The man was safely hoisted into the helicopter and was flown to a hospital.

The man is expected to make a full recovery.
