This tree well almost took the life of young Ethan. His screams in the video below are terrifying enough.

If his father hadn’t been skiing with him and been above him at the time of this tree well incident he most surely would have died.

Tree wells are real. Tree wells kill.

“All, I’ve decide to reactivate my Facebook page only to share with you “THE” most frightening experience I have had as a father, and the dangers of tree wells” wrote Winston Goss on his Facebook page.

“What you’re about to see is a very real threat and there are many who die each year. Fortunately I was there to pull my son out. Please, take the time to know the dangers around you. Most importantly, never ski alone. — at Brundage Mountain Resort (Hidden Valley).”

The snow and terrain in this video looks amazing, the kind you just want to dive right into. But as the video shows you’d be foolish to do this alone.

Check out these tips on avoiding or surviving tree wells.

Glad Ethan made it out alive.
