A dramatic rescue happened on one of the world's most dangerous mountains. Elite climbers from Poland made a dangerous night rescue on the 8,126-meter-high Nanga Parbat in Pakistan. The mountain is known as "Killer Mountain" because of the number of climbers who died there. The team rescued French climber Elisabeth Revol 7,400 meters up. A climber Ms Revol was climbing with is still missing. It was too dangerous to spend more time on the rescue.
The climbers were trying the first ever winter ascent of K2, the second highest mountain in the world. The drama began on Saturday when army helicopters spotted Ms Revol. They flew the Polish climbers 4,900 meters up Nanga Parbat. The team made its daring rescue in total darkness. Unfortunately, it was too dangerous to rescue another climber Tomasz Mackiewicz. A rescuer said it was so dangerous it, "would put the life of rescuers in extreme danger".
