Instead of thinking about himself his arm lets go because he is worried about his camera up top. I've never understood the helmet cam concept and it looks to be it can create a bad event as well. Wonder if the fella learned anything?
That's how I saw it too. Personally, if I have a helmet and loaded pack on and a chunk of ice that size falls, I press in to the wall and let my helmet and pack do their job. Last thing I'd do is try to block it with my hand, which is what looks like happened. Instinctual......but stupid.
