In a miraculous turn of events, Indian mountaineer Anurag Maloo, who went missing on Annapurna I, on Monday has been found alive.

The rescue team that went looking for him in the crevasse he had fallen into has found and rescued him, according to his brother Sudhir.

“He is in a critical condition but he is alive,” says Sudhir. “Seven Summit Treks have done an amazing job to bring my brother back.”

Seven Summit Treks confirmed Maloo had been found by seven Nepali climbers some 300 metres down into a crevasse. He has been taken to Pokhara’s Manipal Hospital.

“He is very critical. Doctors are looking after him,” says Thaneswar Guragai, the general manager at Seven Summit Treks.

On Monday, Maloo slipped and fell into a crevasse near Camp II on the mountain while descending.

Anurag Maloo is on a mission to climb all 14 peaks above 8,000 metres and the seven highest points in all seven continents to create awareness and drive action towards achieving the UN Global Goals.

A petition had been started by his family and friends to rescue Maloo and bring him back.
