A crevasse training session nearly turns into a real rescue mission

ANTARCTICA – A team member with the International Polar Foundation descended down a narrow crevasse on a rescue training session in Antarctica. During the mock rescue, the harness broke, forcing the rescuer to re-attach everything and try again. Once they made it to the top, they slipped and fall several feet back into the crevasse. Luckily, the ropes held and they were able to climb all the way out.
