ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (eTN) – The chances of survival of more than 130 Pakistani soldiers buried under 80 feet of snow in a remote area in the north when an avalanche hit their camp are rare and meager. Four days have passed since the avalanche, and there is little hope left for survival. Despite weather hazards, rescue operations at Gayari Sector continues at five priority points, identified with the help of an SPD team employed with plant equipment, and Army search and rescue teams.

A 450-meter long access track has been developed on the avalanche to access the priority points. Work on another access track has also been started to widen the search perimeter. Mainly plant equipment is being employed at two points. Work is in progress at rapid speed at both points.

Work at the other three points are mainly being done with the help of infantry troops who have resorted to manual digging with some assistance from plant equipment where required. A dozer has been employed to restore the water channel, which has been blocked due to the avalanche. So far, two exits are available with 20 and 15 cusecs discharge. Efforts are in hand to enhance the same with the help of plant equipment.

Names have been received from Pakistan Army sources of those buried under the snow:
