Woman films dramatic footage of avalanche crashing towards house in Norway

A Norwegian woman showed she had quick wits and a cool head by recording a video of a "dramatic" avalanche as it cascaded towards her house.

Gunn Gravem Isaksen, a 48-year-old shop manager from the town of Furugrenda in central Norway, said she was at home when the avalanche was triggered.
