Short hike proves baneful for Australian

A young Australian lady Sarah Jane Smee was rescued today from Pokhara to Kathmandu on our helicopter AIK (AS350B).

Sarah was on her short trek up to the stupa inside the lake city (Pokhara) when she fell off and unfortunately fractured her knee. Captain Deepak Rana flew the helicopter immediately from Kathmandu to Pokhara. From there she was flown to the capital for proper treatment.

We wish her the earliest recovery.

Our same helicopter also carried out two charter shuttles from Pokhara to Ghorepani on other occasions of the same and previous day under command of Captain Deepak Rana.
