It begins by overlooking a well-worn ski slope. Mountains can be made out in the backdrop against a bright blue sky. The man appears to be skiing with extreme speed as he flies down the snowy slope. But all of a sudden he approaches the edge, where it’s impossible to see what surface comes next.
He cries out in horror as he freefalls a considerable distance and plunges into the slope beneath.Thankfully however, two and a half feet of snow cushions his fall.He sits up looking alarmed and relieved at the same time as he brushes snow off the camera which is now facing him.
A Go-Pro camera he wore on his helmet caught the full terrifying plunge.But remarkably Stratton landed on a 2.5ft mound of soft snow and walked away without even a minor injury.And now he admits how he accepted death in mid-air.
