MUST SEE: Incredible Mountainside Chopper Rescue

France (CNN)- 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 roughly 6,500 feet above Passy, France and what unfolded was like something out of a movie 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. Local news outlets reported he is expected to make a full recovery.
