36 Hours After A Climber Vanished In The Himalayas – A Drone Spotted A Lone Figure At 26,000 Feet

After becoming lost on Broad Peak mountain in the Himalayas for 36 hours, Rick Allen’s energy was waning. He was slipping in and out of consciousness and struggling to make meaningful ground. However, just as things were beginning to seem hopeless, a drone came flying towards him.

Allen comes from Aboyne in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. An experienced mountaineer, he has taken on some of the toughest climbs on the planet alongside friend and hiking partner Sandy Allan, who hails from the Scottish Highlands.
