Just wanted to share this photo that was on the front page of a norwegian national paper called Verdens Gang. It is from the evacuation of an avalanche victim that tragically passed away a few hours after this photograph was taken. The 100 m long avalanche came crashing down on a party of three that were backcountry skiing in one of the mountains near Tromsø in Northern Norway.
The victim was evacuated, using a stretcher sledge through the woods with CPR ongoing. The paramedic is sitting on the sledge, straddling the patient, performing CPR while the patient is evacuated through the woods from the avalanche runout-zone.
