Mount Vancouver Climbing Notes

    Srikar Jonnalagadda from Australia

    I fell off the mountain and broke both my legs and one of my arms. I lost my second arm because it was stuck under a rock that fell on my arm. I got brain damage from hitting my head. I was stuck under the snow for 2 days and only my head was out I nearly ran out of oxygen when I saw a group of climbers coming towards me. I had no food left so I almost starved to death. My dad was decapitated by a sharp rock that he fell on. No one has found my mother or sister's body. When I got out of the snow we realised we were stuck on the side of the mountain. We had to wait 5 months for a helicopter to come and save us. One of the climbers died of hypothermia and another fell down on the sharp rocks because he went crazy. Only me and one climber survived and he had lost his legs from frostbite. Then the helicopter malfunctioned and crashed into the mountain and I almost died but the pilot and climber died from impact all I could taste was the jet fuel burning. I passed out and a week later I woke up in a hospital. 10/10 would definitely recommend.
