Mitra Prasad Ghimire has been rescued this morning from Bakhachaur, Aiselukharka (5800~ft). As we were told, a tree fell on his foot yesterday afternoon at about 1500 hours and he was badly injured.
Captain Steven immediately took off on our Bell (206bIII) helicopter from Kathmandu as soon as they called for rescue and flew him here for proper medical attention.
We wish him the earliest recovery.
