Yet another Longline rescue at Island Peak

Longline Rescue

A Swiss lady was rescued this morning from Island Peak Base Camp on our B3 by our rescue team of Capt. Maurizio Folini and Capt. Simone Moro.

She was on her expedition when she collapsed at the base of the steep face, 150m before the summit of Island Peak (6189m approx.). The duo flew to base camp from where Simone Moro got into the longline and they flew to where the lady was stuck at 6050m. They evacuated her from the area and thereafter flew her in the helicopter to Lukla initially and then to the capital for medical attention.

We wish for her earliest recovery and thanking the Italian rescue duo once again.
