Everest live video from South Side helicopter rescue
05:37 a.m. EDT May 24, 2003
Luanne Freer, the Everest Base Camp clinic Doc, has not slept throughout the night. As we have had reports of numerous climbing injuries on Everest North side yesterday, and a miraculous rescue of Carlos Pauner on Kangchenjunga, today the clinic on the Everest South Side is swamped with injured and ill climbers. Lucky enough however, the only deaths on 8000+ peaks this year have been 2 casualties on Cho Oyu.

Read Luanne's report from today's Everest clinic emergencies and check out the video posted just minutes ago from this mornings helicopter rescue.
