A MAKESHIFT helipad is cleared to allow patients critically injured in the Everest avalanche - triggered by the Nepalese earthquake - to be airlifted to hospital for treatment. The footage was shot by Carsten Lillelund Pedersen, a Dane who was climbing Everest with Belgian climber Jelle Veyt while the avalanche struck. Pedersen can be heard describing the scene, which includes shots of what remains of base camp, with tents levelled by the onrushing snow.
