"It is clear that the fundamental cause is recklessness and imprudence,"
It is labeled "pista nera" or black ski run, indicating a level of steepness and other difficult conditions suitable only for the most experienced skiers.

God. Is it really allowed to go inside there for more than one?
for unknown reasons the ball deviated from the route and fell into the gorge
unknown reasons, sheesh. And look at the idiot who's trying to chase it running in the deep snow.

what a vid to have as the last one of your dad.

The horrific moment that father of two young girls dies after inflatable ball he was zorbing spins out of control and falls off a cliff at Russian ski resort | Mail Online

and if it really was 'organised recreation' and the guys were told by the instructors they were safe... although I fail to understand how the guy down there would have stopped the Zorb, even if on track.

Well, that worked, but I'd say that the Health and Safety folks will "tsk tsk" the method.

Actually, I think that the two running afterward were the only people "bright" enough in this video to realize where the ball was heading.

They tried to stop it...It didn't work.
