Some troubles on Everest North for Mexican expedition

Luis Alvarez made it to summit, but get blinded, both Jorges become rescuers without summit.

Once again, as in 2011 in Lothse, Mexican Jorge Antonio Salazar Gavia, who was trying to reach the north side summit of Everest with no supplemental oxygen has aborted the push to become a rescuer. He, along with Jorge Hermosillo are in the no easy task to bring down their partner, Luis Alvarez and a member of another expedition who reached the summit, but became blind. That was the scenario in 2011 when Jorge Salazar decided to turn back just close to the summit seeing the time was running out on Lothse, but 2 other decided to go on and didn’t come back to camp 3 that night. They were found alive in the morning but with severe frostbites and one blinded. He and Benegas brothers helped them to descend and saved their lives. As of now, they may have reached camp 2. More info as I get it.
