The North Face released a video of Cory Richards' evacuation from Everest to Lukla, Nepal. The climber was suffering from shortness of breath and doctors feared a pulmonary embolism. He eventually ended up feeling better after receiving tests in a hospital in Kathmandu.

Roughly 12 hours ago, he published this message on Facebook:

Thanks for the well wishing Ya'll!!! Things are great and I'm stoked to head back up barring any 11th hour medical results. That said, all tests have come back overwhelmingly positive...resting heart rate of 31!!! Yeah!
