Survivors Battle for Helicopters Near Nepal Village That Vanished

It was three foreign trekkers who used their satellite telephone to call the rescue helicopter that landed in Nepal's Langtang Valley around midday on Tuesday, April 28. Three days earlier, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake had triggered a catastrophic landslide that buried hundreds of people in one village in the valley. But villagers clung to the chopper's landing skids, preventing it from taking off, witnesses said.
