For those who Ski

I knew these guys, not well but we new each others names. I lived there for 11 years, a small town of 7500 people. Close to home, this is life...

RE: For those who Ski

Yes, you do get to know people in a community that size. Something like this makes a big impact..........

Question though..

"Ski patrol member Jeff Bridges then went in wearing an oxygen mask, but he also fell unconscious. Another patrol member, Steve McCabe, then held his breath, went in about 15 feet, hooked a rope to Bridges and pulled him out.

"And that's what saved Jeff Bridges' life," Gregory said.

What was in Jeff Bridges' oxygen supply that caused him to collapse 15-20 feet in, while the fellow holding his breath got in & out?

Maybe it is just the sentence structure in the report, but it does give one pause...
