Rescue on Broad Peak

Video of the rescue of French alpinist Fabien, at 7200m in camp 3 on Broad Peak, Himalaya in 2004. He was not able to walk so he had to be lowered down by others. Climbers from different expedition teams joined forces to bring him down to camp 1 at 5600 meter where he received medical injections and bottled oxygen. When he was 'stabilized' he was lowered down to basecamp, where he was picked up by a helicopter of the Pakistan army the next day.
Respect for all the guys that helped him!
