Skier survives 1,000 ft mountain fall

Video showing the moment an American professional skier tumbled about 1,000 ft (305 metres) down an Alaskan mountain, has clocked up 350,000 hits on YouTube.

Angel Collinson was doing a stunt for a winter sports movie, Paradise Waits, when she hit an icy patch, according to the film's producers Teton Gravity Research.

Ms Collinson tried to use her arms to slow her fall, but when that failed she covered her face to protect it. She suffered injuries to two fingers and some bruising.
