Field Touring Alpine help save porter from HAPE

There was drama at the base camp for Field Touring Alpine. This porter had recently arrived to the camp. He soon developed what looked like HAPE (high altitude pulmonary edema). Field Touring Alpine members provided oxygen and medicines for a number of hours. After this his condition improved considerably. A few members from this group are accompanying him to lower altitudes. He is reportedly doing much better.
