Lars Eriksson documented the evacuation of a climber on Mt. Everest from the highest possible point reached by helicopter at 20,833 ft. above sea level.
It’s unclear as to why the climber had to be evacuated, but it must have been serious to warrant a helicopter landing at 20,000+’ for rescue.
Lars Eriksson: “An expedition member is being evacuated from Everest camp 2 at 6350 meters.
This is the highest altitude for helicopter rescue on Everest.”
