Gayari updates: Rescue operation continues despite odd weather conditions

Rawalpindi – April 16, 2012: Search and rescue Operation at Gayari continues round the clock even against heavy odds. The weather remained very harsh and posing serious challenges to the men and machines working at the avalanche
site alike.

However, the spirit and zeal of courageous soldiers has not wavered under arduous conditions. In fact, the urge to help their mates stuck under avalanche has given them newfound resilience. The skies have been continuously showering
flakes of snow.

The rescue work is being carried out at full speed with sufficient number of plant equipment. The exasperating work at the tunnel being dug in the compact snow of avalanche, needed to access a suspected structure to find survivors,
has made good progress by using  control  use of explosives.

A team of German and Swiss rescuers is also rendering useful help in conforming already available data to locate the survivors. Meanwhile, the excavation work continued at three other sites to search survivors. Similarly, some
engineer’s effort was also dedicated to widen outflow of water channel, which had been blocked by the avalanche.
