Rescue from Hilsa!

Our AS 350 B3 carried out a rescue flight this morning from Hilsa (10700ft).
Mr. Prakash Tamang met with an unfortunate accident on his motorbike close to the Chinese border and fractured both his legs. The medical attention he was receiving at Hilsa was going to prove futile unless he travelled to the capital.
As soon as Fishtail Air was notified of the rescue needed, Captain Deepak flew our B3 directly from Kathmandu Airport to Simikot and then to Hilsa. Prakash was flown to Kathmandu and given proper medical care.
We wish that his legs get better soon and that he can feel mother earth on his feet again.
