A French mountaineer has described how she was forced to abandon her weak and ailing climbing partner in order to be rescued from one of Pakistan's most deadly Himalayan mountains.
Elisabeth Revol told AFP news agency that Polish climber Tomasz Mackiewicz's health worsened as they descended Nanga Parbat, nicknamed "Killer Mountain".
Only she was rescued by an elite Polish climbing team in a dramatic operation.
Doctors in France are now assessing whether she will require amputations.
Rescuers could not reach Mr Mackiewicz and it is thought unlikely he could have survived.

"Hey, I've got a great idea! Let's climb KILLER MOUNTAIN."
Quite an ordeal. I thought she was the guy when I saw the pic.
She still has her nose. The nose often is badly damaged when high altitude climbers get extreme frostbite.
Right after we finish spelunking corpse cave!
‘Despite the ordeal, she has not ruled out climbing again, saying: “I need this.”’
There is stupid.
There is stupid.
Indeed there is stupid, and in her case, it cant be fixed. 👎
It’s only a man! he’s dead and who cares? What matters is that the woman (feminists are you listening?) survived, thus proving that women can do anything that men can do.
At least Beck Weathers realized that there comes a time when another hobby and vocation is a better option.
