However, living on the edge has left him coming face-to-face with a near-death experience. The drama was all caught on video.

Branson’s mission to reach the top of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps and the highest in Europe, came with a lot of victory, but also could have ended in disaster.

A few days ago, the owner of the Virgin brand made it to the summit of Mont Blanc and enjoyed the incredible views.

But things quickly took a turn for the worse.

“At the end of the first day climbing Mont Blanc for the Virgin Strive Challenge we found ourselves trapped on the side of a mountain as a huge rock fall caused boulders the side of small cars to fall on us,” he said on Instagram.

He went on the say: “Throughout all our challenges I’ve never come so terrifying close to losing myself, my son and other team mates & it all happened in a matter of seconds.”

We’re happy Richard Branson, his son, and everyone else is safe!
