Pakistan Army rescues Russian climber from mountainous region

Islamabad: The Pakistan Army has rescued a Russian climber stranded in the country's northern mountainous region, the military said on Tuesday. "In a daring rescue attempt early morning today (Tuesday), Pakistani Army aviation pilots rescued Russian climber Alexander Gukov who was stuck at 20,650 feet high Latok Peak in Biafo Glacier," an Inter-Services Public Relations statement said.

Gukov has been shifted to a military hospital in Skardu city, reports Xinhua news agency. He was stuck at the Latok Peak since July 25. A total of seven rescue attempts were made between July 26 to 30 but due to rough weather conditions, the climber could not be located, the statement said.
