article #3

Altitude Sickness on the Way to Clouds Rest

this article is about a couple that hiking in high altitude and the husband was having difficulty breathing. They kept on hiking even if the husband was sick. the husband condition kept on getting worse, the wife decided to call for help when she saw the husband was unable to hold his backpack. When help came they saw that he had a big problem and that his blood was low on oxygen so he went straight to the hospital, the doctors said that he got pneumonia and he had to stay in the hospital for 2 nights.

This article made me realize that the moment if I don't feel good during a trip and I don't start feeling better soon I should always call for help immediately.
