accident on Mt Aspiring 21-Aug-2013 At 3:39:40 PM Will_P
Apologies to any friends or family further saddened by reviving this topic, but returning from a climbing trip to NZ a couple of weeks ago, I watched on the flight home episode 1 of a NZ series, 'High Country Rescue'.

This episode followed the SAR notification of Egg's accident, the preparation, the search and location, and the body recovery. The first SAR guy on the actual scene was wearing a helmet cam, and the footage is harrowing. Despite what these shows are generally like, this one treated the accident as one of those things that happen, even to well-prepared people who know what they are doing. The respect and caring towards Egg displayed by the SAR members was truly moving.

I tried to find a link to this episode online, but it's a few years old, so I think it's been removed. But if you're flying Air New Zealand in the near future, check it out. A sobering reminder of the possible consequences.
