TITULARES: Video de un rescate en el Himalaya
Himalaya, Karakoram, Broad Peak, 2004
The rescue of French alpinist Fabien, who suffered High Altitude Cerebral
Edema (HACE) on Broad Peak in camp 3 at 7200 meter.
His situation was very critical. He was not able to walk so he had to be
lowered down by others.
Climbers from different expedition teams joined forces to create a kind of
stretcher from sleeping bag and matresses and with a longlasting rescue
operation they managed to bring him down to camp 1 at 5600 meter where he
received medical injections (Dexamethason) and bottled oxygen. When he was
'stabilized' he was lowered down to basecamp, where he was picked up by a
helicopter of the Pakistan army the next day.
Fabien luckely survived. With thanks to all the climbers who where involved
in the rescue!
