(BLACKFOOT) – A Blackfoot man’s close call with death has launched him into YouTube stardom. Snowmobiler Kyle Pratt was sledding in the mountains near Bedford, Wyoming a few weeks ago when a cornice collapsed beneath his machine. Pratt was able to step off and save his sled from dropping nearly 300 feet off a cliff. KIDK reports that Pratt was able to record the entire event with a camera on his goggles, and later posted the video on YouTube, where it’s been seen by over 1.4 million viewers.
