A deadly avalanche in Nepal on Sunday killed at least nine people, but from that tragic accident comes a truly inspiring story.
Canadian adventurer Greg Hill, who was in Nepal, free-skiing, is known to have achieved some incredible things in his life. Notably he has climbed and skied 2m feet in a year and planted over a million trees.
But it's Hill's actions this weekend that make him a hero. He was on Mount Manaslu at 4am, in the pitch black, when the avalanche hit: a massive crash of snow, ice and debris an estimated 700m wide that swept the mountaineers and their camps 300m down the mountain. (One adventurer later described the scene as "a war zone".)
Here's a video of Hill relaxing on an normal afternoon:
