Billionaire Gautam Adani arranged for an air ambulance to transport mountaineer Anurag Maloo, who was rescued last month after falling into a deep canyon in Nepal’s Mount Annapurna, from Kathmandu to the AIIMS in New Delhi.
Mountaineer’s brother Aashish Maloo took to Twitter today to express gratitude for Adani’s timely action to airlift the injured.
“Grateful beyond words for the timely airlifting! Many thanks to @gautam_adani and @AdaniFoundation for their invaluable support in safely repatriating @AnuragMaloo,” he tweeted.

Mr Maloo, a resident of Kishangarh in Rajasthan, went missing on April 17 after falling from a height of 5,800 meters while descending from Camp III on Mount Annapurna – the 10th highest mountain in the world, which is known for its treacherous terrain.
He survived in the avalanche-prone crevasse for three days before being rescued on the morning of April 20. He was in a critical condition and was taken first to a nearby medical camp, then to the Manipal Hospital in Pokhara and later to the Medicity Hospital of Kathmandu.
His family asked the Adani Foundation for help in arranging and bearing the cost of the airlift and ground transportation from Nepal to India as the cost seemed to be beyond their means.
The founder and chairman of the Adani Group, Gautam Adani, promptly took action, and his philanthropic arm, the Adani Foundation, arranged for an air ambulance and a transfer.
Anurag Maloo was rescued and flown to the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi for medical treatment and is currently receiving treatment.
In reply to Aashish Maloo’s tweet, Mr. Adani said it was a privilege for him and his wife, who heads the Adani Foundation, to help the injured mountaineer.
“Priti and I are privileged to help. We are happy to hear that Anurag is safe and pray for his speedy recovery. We are confident that he will soon be ready to conquer more of life’s peaks,” tweeted he.

After flying in from Kathmandu, Maloo was taken to AIIMS’ Jai Prakash Narayan Apex Trauma Center where he was admitted to the ICU. His condition is said to be stable.
