Pro Skier Falls Down Mountain While Being Filmed For A Movie

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with best wishes to Ian McIntosh. The skier was being filmed for a movie in Alaska when he performed an unintentional stunt. On a mountaintop, he fell and cartwheeled 1,600 feet down a nearly vertical wall of snow. Video of this incident shows a black spot tumbling down so small in the landscape he looks like an insect. At last, he came to a stop, said he was OK, except his neck was a little stiff. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
