INDIAN AIR FORCE SUCCESSFULLY EVACUATED TREKKERS IN UTTARKASHI

Racing against time, IAF helicopters have successfully evacuated three survivors and the mortal remains of five trekkers, out of the 15 trekkers who were trapped in severe weather while trekking to Sahastra Tal, Uttarkashi.

Due to the high altitude and undulating terrain, the rescue was conducted by two light weight Cheetah helicopters from the higher ground to the base camp and further to the nearest medical centre with medium lift Mi17 V5 helicopters.

Three Sherpas and the mortal remains of four trekkers will be evacuated tomorrow.
