Heart-stopping video has been circulating purporting to show a Russian skier going over the edge of a cliff in a terrifying avalanche.

The footage, first posted in late November, shows the lead skier in a group approach the edge of a snow cliff and stop — before the entire bank of snow gives way beneath him.

The other skiers — one of whom is filming — shout and approach the edge to look for their comrade, before quickly backing away to avoid the same fate.

Russian outlet Pravda reports that the incident took place near the village of Priiskovoe in southern Russia, but does not say when the accident occurred.

Though it can’t be verified in the video, Russian outlet Pravda reports that the skier miraculously survived.
