A snowboarder fell into a deep tree well on Mount Shasta and his helmet camera captured the entire thing.

James Drummond was recording his runs at Mount Shasta on Monday when he tumbled -- landing upside down -- under six feet of snow. He knew exactly where he was but it took him 20 minutes to reach his cell phone and tell his wife to call the ski patrol.

"I'm stuck in a tree well! Give them my phone number!" said Drummond.

"Are you serious?" asked Drummond's wife.

"I'm going to die if they don't find me!" said Drummond.

"Are you serious?" asked Drummond's wife.

"Call them! Give them my number!" said Drummond.

The snow patrol arrived within half an hour and dug Drummond out. He then snowboarded down the mountain.
