In a recent interview with 'Closer Weekly,' Susan Lucci exclusively opens up about how her husband, Helmut Huber, saved her life during a scary skiing trip back when they first got married in 1969.
“Very early on [in our marriage], we were skiing in Tignes Le Lac in France, and I fell off the lift,” she reveals to 'Closer.' “We were only midway up the mountain, and I slipped and was sliding and it was above the trees, so there was nothing to grab onto.”
Luckily, Susan had wed an experienced skier. “He schussed down below me and managed to stop my fall. It was a good sign that he saved me. Otherwise, I would have fallen thousands of feet off a cliff!” she tells the mag.
“I got a good one” says the soap star. She jokes: “A lot of husbands would’ve let me go.”
