What I dislike about these pieces, the media looks for SEXY stories then grabs onto them like a dog with a bone. The people interviewed are professionals that were working/filming/doing a story when caught, knowing the consequences of their actions. Seldom Seen calls it Kodak Courage. Encourages bad behavior.
Avalanches kill more than a 100 people worldwide each year. We have stories of three people who were caught in avalanches and survived.
