“During every climbing season on Mount Everest, many brave rescues take place. The media tends to focus and highlight the rescues involving clients and foreign climbers, but there are lesser-known stories, such as this one, where a sherpa’s life is saved. We successfully rescued a sherpa who had fallen into a crevasse between camp 1 and camp 2, and it’s a miracle that he survived. This story is a reminder of the sacrifices and risks mountain workers face in making #Everest expeditions possible. #Nepal #himalaya,” Tamang wrote as he posted the video.

The clip opens to show the sherpa stuck in waist-deep snow inside a crevasse. As the video progresses, another person is seen digging the snow around the sherpa to help him get out.
