Sherpa Tashi Daba, a survivor of the Mount Everest avalanche, undergoes treatment Friday in the intensive-care unit of Grandee Hospital in Katmandu, Nepal. Authorities called off the rescue operation for survivors after 12 Nepali climbing guides were killed in an avalanche on Mount Everest, as bad weather closed in. Seven climbers were rescued, including two airlifted to Katmandu for treatment.
Search teams recovered a 13th body Saturday from the snow and ice covering a dangerous climbing pass on Mount Everest, where an avalanche a day earlier swept over a group of Sherpa guides in the deadliest disaster on the world's highest peak.
