Seit heute ist auf Thanatos TV die englische Fassung des Interviews mit Monika Dreier-Leuthold zu sehen.

During an Alpine Ski Tour in the area of Oberalp (Switzerland), Monika Dreier-Leuthold was hit by an avalanche and was carried along with it. The time she spent immobalised under the mass of snow – whilst at the same time being able to observe the efforts of her rescue from a bird’s eye view – had a long-lasting effect on her life. In her interview, she speaks about her experiences and her return to everyday life.
