Following the rescue at Mt. Dhaulagiri, the rescue team of Fishtail Air and Air Zermatt retrieved the dead bodies of Russian and Swiss climbers from Mt. Everest (8848m) on 17th May. The team of Sherpas from Extreme Everest Expedition who are up on a clean –up drive in the mountain helped to bring down the dead bodies from the Hillary Step to Camp 2 (6500m). While the Russian climber had died recently, the body of the Swiss climber had been lying at the South col since Spring, 2008.
