Rescue at 19,000 Feet

In 1998, a group of 8 British Army officers attempted an ascent of Mount McKinley, the highest mountain in North America. The mountain's unpredictable weather patterns tricked the expedition, stranding the team at 19,000 feet. What followed is a story of endurance and bravery that concluded with the highest helicopter rescue ever attempted.
