Being buried in an avalanche is like being buried in cement. The snow is rock hard and no air to breath. Miracle that he was pulled out alive after 15 minutes. Let's hope he will be ok.

Dutch Prince Johan Friso has been hit by an avalanche in the Austrian town of Lech, say officials.

Yes,his condition is critical but he does stand a chance in the shock-room of the hospital in Innsbruck,20 minutes is long but he can be saved still, please hope and pray he will be lucky.For Him,his own family,HM,and the entire Dutch RF.

Allthough not an official piste,it WAS cleared so could be used,and they did...

More details from Kronen Zeitung: Arlberg: Prinz Johan Friso von Lawine verschttet - Drama um Prinzen - Stars & Society - krone.at

Friso was skiing off piste.
He was buried under half a metre of snow.
Someone accompanying him ensured he was dug out within 20 minutes.
He was flown to the hospital.
He had to be revived while in the air.
There were no ski-guides or instructors in the group the Prince went with.
Avalance risk was set at level 4.
He was in a group of four.
His condition is described as "stable but not out of danger".
A search party forming a chain was on hand very quickly.

He is in the shock-room of the university-hospital in Innsbruck at the moment
According to the mayor, that slope was deemed safe for skiing. Perhaps still not a wise thing to do geven the conditions. But if an area is cleared as safe....

Horrifying. How terrible for his family. Just awful. Thoughts are with them.

The actual slopes are said to be safe with an avalanche warning of 4 out of 5, but Johan Friso went off slope into an area that has new and untouched snow. Quite an irresponsible thing to do, let's hope that everything turns out fine. My hopes and prayers are with him and his family.

I am not sure about the safety-status of the pist, as I know the area rather well, I guess, they shouldn´t have gone there - it was no pist and risk 4 is an absolute no-go. I hope though, he weill be all right within the next hours.

The RF is absolutely fond of skiing of the beaten track and are known to look for non-official but cleared,pistes.They do that every year,an avalange comes suddenly and can happen everywhere.

Be that as it may,awfull for him,his family,the RF and more even to HM almost,my symphaty goes out especially to her,I don't want her to loose one of her children.
Poor woman,poor RF.

Thanks to the Mod for changing the caption of this thread,thank you.


Announcement of the accident by the RVD on behalve of HM the Queen who is at the side of her son in hospital.:

The Telegraaf is streaming live news coverage. (It's in Dutch, so it's a little hard to figure out the details.)
