She seemed as though she had given up any hope of making it out alive. She was all alone on the mountain and was buried in the snow up to her belly.

Celebrating his 21st birthday, Rafael Pease and a friend had planned to spend the day snowboarding in the Chilean Andes.  While shredding through the blanket of fresh powder, Pease spotted what he at first thought was a rock off in the distance. As he looked closer, however, he realized it was actually a creature in desperate need of help.

Watch as they leap into action!
