Indian climber rescued from a crevasse after 3 days of his missing

An Indian climber, who went missing from April 17, has been rescued from a depth of 300m below the crevasse where he had fallen off at a height of 5,600 m in Annapurna, said his expedition organizer.

“Anurag Maloo has been airlifted to Pokhara Manipal Hospital. His condition remains yet to be confirmed,” Dawa Sherpa, Expedition Manager of Seven Summit Trek, his expedition agency, told Everest Chronicle. 


The hospital official said doctors are conducting CPR on him. The rescue team reportedly saw eyes rolling during his rescue. 


The 34-year-old climber was on a mission to summit all the 14 peaks above 8,000m and seven summits to create awareness about the UN Sustainable Development Goals.


On Tuesday, Noel Hanna, an experienced climber from Northern Ireland, was found dead at a camp after he climbed the summit of Annapurna without supplemental oxygen. His dead body was airlifted to Kathmandu for autopsy.

Indian female climber Baljeet Kaur, who went missing above Camp IV was rescued alive. She has been receiving treatment at Kathmandu-based CIWEC Hospital.


Pakistani climbers Shehroze Kashif, Naila Kiani and Indian climber Arjun Vajpai were also rescued from Camp IV.


Annapurna is considered as one of the toughest mountains to climb. Until spring of 2022, 369 people have climbed Annapurna and more than 72 have died on the mountain, according to Himalayan Data Base.


Expedition agency and climbers say delayed rainfall and snowfall in last winer made climbing more difficult.
