Rescued Taiwanese Hiker Lost Partner, Got Rescued Just Days Before 21st Birthday

Two Taiwanese hikers who have been missing in the Nepalese mountains for 47 days have been retrieved.

After missing for almost seven weeks in the unforgiving Nepalese mountains, Taiwanese hiker 20-year-old Liang Sheng-yue and his partner, 19-year-old Liu Chen-chun were found by rescuers. The pair had been missing for 47 days. While Liang was rescued alive, however, his partner, Liu, had passed away three days before rescue arrived.

Madhav Basnet, an official at Kathmandu-based Asian Trekking Agency and one of the rescuers who were able to locate the lost pair, stated that they were able to retrieve both Liang and Liu before midday Wednesday local time. The pair had been airlifted out of a ravine near the Narchet River in the Himalayas, according to a CNN report.

What was rather tragic, however, was the fact that the rescuers found Liang with the remains of his partner, who had passed away just three days before. Had Liu survived, Liang would have celebrated his 21st birthday with his partner in a Nepalese medical facility. The 20-year-old survivor will turn 21 this coming Friday.
