British snowboarder drops cliff & survives

Rescue teams are calling yesterday's accident, where a British snowboarder fell around 40m from a cliff, a miracle. 

The man was apparently snowboarding off piste in the Rocher du Charvert area when he tumbled over a rocky outcrop. 

He fell into some relatively soft snow which cushioned most of the impact although he did break his lower leg in the process. 

A truly lucky escape..
