Western Kentucky University professor John All was conducting climate research on Mount Himlung in Nepal on Monday when he suddenly fell into a 70-foot crevasse.

All, who broke his arm, five ribs, and dislocated his shoulder, managed to document his 4-5 hour journey to the surface in a series of videos posted on YouTube. He was eventually rescued by helicopter the next morning and taken to a hospital, describing his ordeal as "one of life's hardest moments"

  1. Note To John All: I conduct climate research in my own backyard, mainly with a thermometer out there and I've never once fallen into a crevasse.
    Get well soon - and get a safer job!

  2. This is gay news, but a frustrated straight mass murderer isn't? Couldn't there be a lot of similar gay virgins out there?
