Stuart Julian has designed an emergency breathing device that could keep you alive in an avalanche.

He designed the device after a friend died at Whistler in Canada when he fell into in a snow-filled hole around a tree.

The invention has garnered Stuart an AMP National Scholarship to take the design to the manufacturing stage.
