A 12 year old girl from the
India, which climbed the hill
Aconcagua with his father since January 17, he broke down halfway and is under observation waiting to rule out a high altitude and continue his ascent to the top.
As reported this afternoon to the news agency,
Telam, the girl, who had begun to climb the hill with her father to give a message of overcoming, began to climb and in the area known as
Condor's Nest, at 5,380 meters above sea level, began to vomit, so the Medical Service staff made her go down to
Kaamya Karthikeyan, a girl from India who came to
Mendoza with his father,
Sundaram, in December 2019 and in the middle of this month he obtained the authorization of the family court in charge of
Carlos Juri, after the Natural Resources Department of the province denied him permission to start the expedition.
After obtaining a judicial authorization, Kaamya was able to fulfill the dream of trying to summit with his father at Aconcagua in the mission called
Sahas, with the aim of sending a message of “breaking rooted sexist structures in your country”.
As they indicated, they will stay in Plaza de Mulas until a high altitude is ruled out – or not – to corroborate their physical aptitude in order to continue the ascent to the top of the Colossus of America, 6,960 meters high.
“I think that coming here, to Aconcagua, I make it easier for children to think that it is possible to achieve goals and that sport is a way that transcends the strictly sporting and the rest of their own lives. The most difficult mountains I climb with my father, I also climbed several times with my mother, “Kaamya told reporters in Mendoza while awaiting judicial authorization.
Acute mountain sickness (MAM), known as “altitude sickness”, “bad moor”, “soroche”, “aiming” or “puna sickness”, is the organism's lack of adaptation to hypoxia (lack of oxygen) of altitude. The severity of the disorder is directly related to the speed of ascent and the altitude reached.
