Father of the missing climber Szilárd Suhajda, Tibor Suhajda, had left an emotional message for his son stranded near the summit of Mount Everest. Although a rescue mission is on its way to the Hungarian mountaineer, hopes for his safe return are fading.
“What could you be going through now! Successes and failures? Let go now and think only of yourself, of survival, concentrate!
Keeping the country together, friends and relatives – WE ARE WITH YOU and I PRAY, PRAY FOR YOU that my little grandson, your son Soma, can slap you in the palm of your hand again – that hello “daddy” is back home… With tears in my eyes, I share the current, encouraging news… We love you and are waiting for you at home. Hold on, you are strong!”, reads the message of the the climber’s worried father.
An update on Szilárd Suhajda’s own social media page reads that “we are still waiting for news about Szilárd. We would love to keep everyone updated, but at the moment, we are doing all our best to clarify the situation.
For the time being, we do not want to disclose every tiny details about the rescue that is currently taking place, because they only feed unnecessary speculations. The sherpas are still on their way in the direction of the Hillary step, in the direction where Szilárd was last seen.
You can be sure that no one is looking forward to news about him than his home team. As soon as we have accurate information on the outcome of the rescue, we will post it here. It might be 12, but it could be 24 hours”.
The last group of sherpas to see Mr. Suhajda alive saw him only a short distance from the summit, but he was reportedly way off the right track, without oxygen mask, had signs of frostbite and was suffering from mountain sickness (AMS).
