A 27-year-old Siberian "daredevil" fell near the summit of Mt Elbrus on Thursday and required rescue. He's in critical condition.

Hi,

I hope he will be fine!
I would imagine it happened on that quite steepy section just before reaching the summit plateau.
So i think he fell down to the saddle at 5200m (place in between the peaks) - very windy place with strong wind chill factor.
