    I'll let SVS tell his story but we came close to losing one of our own. Thanks to Alpental patrol for getting to us as quick as they did and to thefortrees for his help and leadership in getting SVS unburied. Miracles do happen.

    Holy crap. Glad you are still alive.
    I was with the minimagette all day lapping pow. 18” is practically snorkel deep for an 8 year old girl but she tore it up.

    Here's a view of the cliff from the extraction site. Probably 60ish ft. Super lucky thefortrees and I were able to get there quick.

    SVS, so glad you were able to get back to your family tonight. Those calls you made to your wife are going to stay with me forever. I gave my wife and kids some big hugs as soon as I got home.

    Nice pic. It's even crazier from this angle. Thanks for helping guide patrol out to us and glad you made it home.

    Update from Ms. SVS is that he's gone to ER to get checked out. Was able to sleep through pain yesterday after adrenaline wore off. Should hopefully hear an update later today. Keep sending him all the good vibes you can.
