Rescue hopes have faded for a Polish mountaineer trapped high on Pakistan's Nanga Parbat peak. Polish rescuers brought down his French colleague in a daring night-time rescue.
French mountaineer Elisabeth Revol was flown with frostbite to a hospital in Islamabad on Sunday as her rescuers admitted it was "not possible" to save Polish climber Tomek Mackiewicz from Pakistan's Nanga Parbat peak.
"We are in deep sadness. All our thoughts go out to Tomek's family and friends. We are crying," wrote a friend of Revol, Ludovic Giambiasi, on Facebook.
"No one did such a climb before, Most people, it takes two or three days, and they did it in eight hours in the darkness.
