Tour guide rescues man from avalanche near Revelstoke, B.C.

WNews 1 Min Read

A tour guide is being hailed a hero because of his fast actions pulling a man to safety after a group of snowmobilers got hit by an avalanche earlier this week. 

Olivier Meilleur was heading down Boulder Mountain in Revelstoke, B.C., about 565 kilometres northeast of Vancouver, after a day of sledding when he noticed a group of men frantically searching in the snow.

“I was not too sure what was going on at the beginning,” Meilleur told CBC News. “I didn’t know, like somebody was buried.”

But he sprang into action, helping dig out a man who had been trapped in the snow.
