Video: Rescue footage posted of Manaslu avalanche aftermath

Dynafit posts video footage shot by Revelstoke's Greg Hill of the aftermath of the avalanche on Nepal's Mount Manaslu.



Video footage of the aftermath of the avalanche that killed at least eight people on Nepal’s Mount Manaslu was posted to YouTube by the ski equipment manufacturer Dynafit.

The footage, shot by Revelstoke’s Greg Hill, shows the Dynafit team, which was attempting to climb and ski off the summit of the world’s eighth highest mountain in record time, skiing up to rescue people caught in the slide.

Most of the commentary in the video is in German, so the Times Review is unclear on what is being said about the rescue. Hill can be heard speaking at several points in the video.

“Devastation. Huge avalanche. Tents, everything.” he says at the beginning, amidst a scene of a massive debris field of snow and equipment strewn about. Tents and other equipment are scattered all over the debris field. The sound of people crying for help can be heard.

Rescuers are seen digging out tents and attending to the victims.

The avalanche struck camp three of the 8,163-metre-high mountain at an elevation of about 7,000 metres. Eight people are confirmed dead, three missing and 10 were injured in the slide.

Hill was on the expedition as the cameraman for the speed attempt. His team was set up at camp two, away from the avalanche’s path. Hill’s wife Tracey expressed relief when she found out her husband was okay.

“Not that you can predict everything that’s going to happen but I know him and I know he won’t do anything that would mean he won’t be coming home, and I trust him for that,” she told the Times Review.
