Vitya Koval: Sanya says he was on the verge, hallucinating.
On the third day used without food.
Zabrosku mine he btw found 
Avalanches and day and night. Thought they wouldn't save.
Helicopters on the obletah heard, but understood that in the clouds it will not be seen or fly.
The legs were frozen because the last two days didn't have the strength to dig, his legs were snowed in, he was lying.
He wouldn't be able to pull up until tomorrow.
Would freeze.
He threw a bag down this morning because he was soaked and frozen through, not warmed, but vice versa.

Thank you for saving lives lives of climbers
The team saved lives of more than 5 climbers ( less than 6 months time period)
On K-2, Nanga Parbat, Two times on Latok, and on Ulter peak in the Karakorum mountain ranges
Army aviation pilots made all this possible 
Only climbers can understand the harshness of Karakorum mountains and its weather conditions
