    A daring helicopter rescue -- caught on video.

    This helicopter was dispatched to help an injured skier on the French Alps.

    Look how close it gets -- the aircraft's nose wedges into the snow as it flies within inches of the mountainside.

    The crew was able to land, rescue the skier -- hoisting him up to safety.

    Fortunately, he is okay.
