Drone spots Scots climber feared dead in Himalayas- bbc.co.uk

A Scottish climber feared dead on the world’s 12th highest mountain was rescued after his rucksack was spotted where he had fallen.

Aberdeen-born Rick Allen, a highly experienced climber based in Aboyne, was in the Himalayas with climbing partner Sandy Allan, from Newtonmore.

Mr Allen was returning from a solo climb to the summit of 8,047m (26,401ft) Broad Peak when he fell.

A base camp cook saw his rucksack and then a drone was used to locate him.
