"Well, I'm pretty well f***ed."
Those are scientist John All's first words on camera after falling down a 22-metre deep crevasse in Nepal's Himalayan mountains. Over the next six hours, All managed to climb his way out of the hole, despite having a broken arm, several broken ribs, a dislocated shoulder and internal bleeding. He captured it all on video.
After making his way out of the crevasse, All crawled for three hours to get back to his tent, where he was rescued by helicopter the following morning.
All had travelled to Nepal to climb Mount Everest, but after one of the sherpas on his team was killed in this year's deadly avalanche, the Western Kentucky University professor decided to try for Mount Lhotse instead, one of Everest's sister peaks.
The world really is a crazy place.
