A helicopter pilot pulled off a daring maneuver to rescue an injured skier high in the French Alps, after a group he was with became stranded.

US News reports that on January 2, a young man was skiing with friends in the Pass of Anterne when he apparently dislocated his knee and started having trouble skiing down the mountain.

The rescue was carried out by the Peloton de Gendarmerie de Haute Montagne (PGHM), a specialised unit of the French National Gendarmerie tasked with aiding victims in mountain ranges. Luckily, 9NEWS reports, his team was able to call the emergency services despite being well above cloud level, at an altitude of around 7 000 feet.

The supplier "enabled" the cheating and should have known its customers would use the software improperly, the office added. If Fiat Chrysler doesn't get at least 85% of the vehicles brought in for repairs, it will face additional fines.

In videos posted to Facebook, the helicopter can be seen flying in to rescue the injured man, with the nose of the aircraft wedging into the snow as the front-right landing skid pressed against the mountain. A rope is dropped down from the helicopter to bring two rescue workers, who had been tending to Bruno's leg, back up.

With the helicopter's rotor blades just inches away from smashing into the snow, the skier was winched away to a nearby hospital.
