A Scottish climber has survived a 1,000-foot fall from a snowy mountain.
Adam Potter, 35, was just about to put on his crampons on when he slipped and made a drop few would have expected anyone to survive.
Not only did Potter survive the fall, but he only suffered relatively minor injuries, the worst being three small fractures to his back.
Potter was rescued by a royal navy helicopter, which was on a training exercise in the area.
When the rescue workers spotted him he was walking around looking at his map, according to the The Scotsman.
"I will be a little bit more cautious next time and perhaps a little bit safer, but I could have slipped on the pavement going out the front door,” Potter told the newspaper
