ROUGH CUT (no reporter narration)

STORY: The dramatic still pictures from Everest Base Camp emerged on Monday (April 27) from a Baltimore-based non-profit organization, Mission 14. The images were shot on Sunday (April 26) after the 7.9 earthquake struck on Saturday, killing 3,700 in Nepal.

Climber Nick Cienski, an executive with a U.S. outdoor apparel firm and founder and CEO of Mission 14, spoke on Monday (April 27) about the situation at the camp, a day after he helped recover the bodies of 12 of at least 17 avalanche victims. The video was shot at Base Camp by the organization.

Cienski is leading the first of six climbs of the world’s tallest mountains as part of the 6 Summits Challenge, which is aimed at raising awareness about human trafficking of children.

Cienski narrowly escaped the avalanche on Mount Everest, but said he would continue with the climbs.
