Kyrgyzstan: They believe they are safe by filming an avalanche and will eventually be transported

A glacier collapsed in Kyrgyzstan due to the heat. The scene was filmed by very careless hikers who ended up trapped in an avalanche.

Incredible pictures from the Juku Valley. While hiking in this mountainous region of Kyrgyzstan (a country located west of China), the tourists saw an avalanche starting in the distance.

Thinking they were safe at this distance from the avalanche, they pulled out their smartphones to film this once-in-a-lifetime spectacular.

Except the scene was shot from a location below and before the avalanche. A mistake if you know the speed of snow descent on such a slope.

After a few minutes, the tourist cameraman (who speaks English) realizes his mistake and the avalanche is going to take him away. “God, Dear God” (God, in French), he cares without fear.

The camera and its occupants are covered in snow before the video cuts out. The scene was filmed from another point of view by a second tourist.
