The amazing moment rescuers using their bare hands find a man buried under snow after an avalanche at a Californian ski resort where a snowboarder, 42, had earlier died

A dramatic video showed rescuers digging a man out of an avalanche that injured five people as blizzard conditions gripped California and killed a snowboarder.

Dozens of rescuers and rescue dogs rushed to the scene after the avalanche hit the Squaw Valley Ski Resort near Lake Tahoe close to the Nevada state line.

One man was hospitalized with a serious lower body injury, another person was treated for injuries and released while three other people escaped injury, the resort said in a statement.

A video uploaded from the slopes shows rescuers digging a man out of the snow, uncovering a bearded face as the victim was covered up to his neck in snow.
