The April 17 mishap
Anurag, who is a resident of Kishangarh recently went on an expedition to Mount Annapurna in Nepal. It is one of the highest peaks in the world. Unfortunately, the climate athlete met with an accident and had gone missing on April 17 after falling from an altitude of 5,800 meters while descending from Camp III on Mount Annapurna.
He was found alive but in critical condition after a search of three days. His family needed support for his treatment as his recovery cost exceeded their means and so they had requested the Adani Foundation's assistance to arrange and bear the cost of the airlift and ground transfer from Nepal to India.
Chairman of the group, Gautam Adani, promptly acted and the Foundation arranged an air ambulance and transfer of Maloo from Nepal to India.
