tourist films against the backdrop of snow in the mountains;  Video

A tourist was hit by an avalanche on a mountain in Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia this Friday (7/8). According to reports on social media, Harry Shimmin was among the group of eight who trekked through the Tian Shan mountain range.

The man broke away from the others to record photos and videos of the landscape, capturing an avalanche coming down the mountain on his cell phone camera. He continued filming when he was hit in a natural incident.

A video shared on the tourist’s Instagram showed the moment of impact. “I was there for a few minutes, so I knew there was a place for shelter right next to me. I was on the edge of a cliff so I could protect myself.

“I am well aware that I took a huge risk. I felt in control, but regardless, as the snow began to fall, and it became dark and difficult to breathe, I was trapped and thought I was going to die.

He claims that he left the place with his body full of dust. “When I joined them [o grupo], one cut her knee but I could see that everyone was safe (she rode one of the horses to the nearest medical center). Another fell from his horse and received minor bruises.
