Michael Laush - Survivor

On Saturday January 19th 2019 while skiing at Vail Colorado I somehow fell into a snow bank headfirst and was buried up to my boots.  My heart stopped beating for what we think was around eight to ten minutes and thanks to a group of amazing people I am alive to tell my story. Those that saved my life are the ones that deserve praise. For random people to help a stranger in need is amazing. The will to not give up and to do CPR when it looked like a lost cause shows extreme bravery and a never give up attitude.  These wonderful people truly are my angels on the mountain.
