French climber rescued from Pakistan's 'killer mountain'

French climber rescued from Pakistan's 'killer mountain'An elite group of mountain climbers have rescued a French mountaineer from a Himalayan peak in Pakistan but had to abandon the search for her climbing partner due to fierce weather conditions. The four volunteer rescuers from a separate Polish expedition, with support from the Pakistani military, launched the attempt on Saturday to rescue stranded French mountaineer Elisabeth Revol. But they were unable to reach Polish national Tomek (Tomasz) Mackiewicz on Nanga Parbat, a peak nicknamed the "killer mountain" after more than 30 climbers died trying to climb it before the first successful summit in 1953. The mountain is the ninth highest peak in the world at 8,126 metres (26,660 feet). Ms Revol, who has frostbite on her feet, was brought on Sunday to the Pakistani capital Islamabad for treatment at the Shifa International Hospital, officials said. The 37-year-old physical education teacher from the Drome region in southern France was in stable condition and her wounds were not life threatening, hospital officials said. But the news for her climbing partner was grim. "The rescue for Tomasz is unfortunately not possible – because of the weather and altitude it would put the life of rescuers in extreme danger," wrote Ludovic Giambiasi, a friend of Ms Revol, in a series of updates on Facebook. "It's a terrible and painful decision," he wrote. The pair ran into trouble after trying to make a late descent to a camp Thursday. They were trapped on the side of the mountain for the night without a tent, battered by frigid temperatures and high winds. The rescue mission was launched after the missing alpinists were located on Friday by fellow mountaineers using binoculars, who spotted Ms Revol attempting to climb down while Mr Mackiewicz appeared to be crawling due to frostbite. The four rescuers who saved Ms Revol were flown by the Pakistani military from the base camp of K2 – the world's second-highest peak – to reach the stranded climbers. They were part of a Polish expedition seeking to become the first mountaineers to summit K2's peak during the winter, when good climbing days are rare.

Woman raises £200,000 for homeless man who rescued her with his last £15  

Woman raises £200,000 for homeless man who rescued her with his last £15  A New Jersey woman has helped raise more than $ 290,000 (£210,000) for a homeless man who spent his last $ 20 (£15) to help her get home when she became stranded. Kate McClure was driving to Philadelphia in October when she ran out of fuel and decided to leave her vehicle to walk to the nearest petrol station. “My heart was beating out of my chest,” she explained. “I pulled over as far as I could, and got out of the car to head to the nearest gas station. That’s when I met Johnny.” Johnny Bobbitt Jr has been living on the streets of Pennsylvania’s largest city for the past 18 months and spends every day sitting on the side of the road holding a sign asking strangers for help. “He saw me pull over and knew something was wrong,” Ms McClure recalled. “He told me to get back in the car and lock the doors. A few minutes later, he comes back with a red gas can.  Using his last $ 20 to make sure I could get home safe. Kate McClure and Johnny Bobbitt Jr. Credit: GoFundMe  “Johnny did not ask me for a dollar, and I couldn’t repay him at that moment because I didn’t have any cash, but I have been stopping by his spot for the past few weeks. “I repaid him for the gas, gave him a jacket, gloves, a hat, and warm socks, and I give him a few dollars every time I see him. “He is such a great guy, and talking to him each time I see him makes me want to help him more and more.”   Inspired by his act of kindness, she and her boyfriend, Mark D’Amico, decided to start a GoFundMe page with goal of raising $ 10,000 (£7,500) to help get the former marine veteran back on his feet. “With the money, I would like to get him first and last month’s rent at an apartment, a reliable vehicle, and 4-6 months worth of expenses,” she said. “He is very interested in finding a job, and I believe that with a place to be able to clean up every night and get a good night’s rest, his life can get back to being normal.” She added that Johnny “is beyond humbled by the amount of support and love he has received over the last few days”. He said the donations would “change his life”. Ms McClure said the worldwide support has been “unreal”.  Newlyweds stop to help homeless man with act of kindness
