Mountaineer Muhammad Ali Sadpara’s son says father’s chances of survival on K2 are slim

On Sunday, his son told the media that the missing Pakistani climber Muhammad Ali Sadpara, who was on a mission to climb the K2 summit, had survived.

Speaking to reporters in Skardu, Sajid said: “Now rescue operations only make sense if they are carried out to retrieve his body. Otherwise, someone alive at 8,000 meters. There will be an opportunity to live. [after being missing for] Two or three days are not ahead of anyone. “

A team of four climbers began their ascent on February 5 (between Thursday and Friday night) at 11:12 p.m., Sajid said.

“Unfortunately, I was without oxygen and at an altitude of about 8,200 meters in the winter. I felt like my health was being affected as well as my mental health.

“My father said he was carrying another oxygen tank that I should use. But when I started installing the oxygen mask regulator, it leaked. So I went downstairs,” he said.

Sajid said the last time he saw his father was at about 8,200-8,300 meters on Friday morning at eleven o’clock, which was the most “technical part” of the climb. There were obstacles.

“I’m sure he called Arooj and was on his way back when he had an accident that left him missing,” he said.

Sajid reached Skardu

The Deputy Commissioner of Sugar had earlier confirmed the safe arrival of Sajid Sadpara in Skardu.

Helicopters, along with Sajid and Dawa Sherpa, who were leading the K2 winter expedition, searched the area at an altitude of 7,800 meters, but “no trace was found due to bad weather,” he said. “

Climber missing

Sadpara and two other climbers with him. A search operation was launched to recover John Sinori from Iceland and John Pablo Moher from Chile on Saturday.

Helicopters flew at an altitude of 7,000 meters on Saturday afternoon in an attempt to find the missing climbers, but their whereabouts could not be traced.

Just two days ago, it was reported that Sadpara and his team had successfully called for 2 of the world’s second highest mountain – 8,611 meters – at the end of Friday, a month after their first attempt failed. ۔

However, his support teams have since warned that the status of the climbers is unclear and there has been no contact with their fate since Friday.

Sadpara’s son reached the camp safely

Waqas Johar, assistant commissioner of Gilgit-Baltistan, said on Saturday afternoon that the search for the missing climbers had not been successful so far and that the weather in K2 was “not good”.

He said that Ali’s son Sajid Sadpara who was waiting in Camp 2 has now started landing.

In a subsequent update, he said Sajid had reached Camp 1.

The climbers set out on a journey

Sadpara, Sunori and Mehr left for their journey late Wednesday, a day after Sadpara’s birthday, telling fans and fans to “keep us in their prayers”.

He began his efforts for a final summit early Friday, and is expected to do so by Friday afternoon.

At 12:12 pm on Friday, according to the latest news published on Sunuri’s Facebook account, the GPS had stopped working and had not been updated in six hours.

It said that Sajid had to return due to non-functioning of oxygen regulator. “He was around the neck of the bottle around 10 a.m.,” the account said.

Citing Sajid’s views, the account states that everyone is fine and moving at a good pace as long as he is not with them.
