Nepal Earthquake - Mal Haskins

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 13 May 2015

At least 50 people have been reported dead in Nepal and 17 in India after the second powerful earthquake to hit the region. The latest earthquake struck near the town of Namche Bazaar and sent thousands of panicked residents on to the streets of Nepal's capital, Kathmandu. New Zealand mountain guide Mal Haskins has been living in Nepal, leading expeditions and flying a helicopter. After the devastating first quake, him and his wife Sophie got together with Sir Edund Hillary's granddaughter, Amelia, to help deliver aid to mountain villages that have been flattened by massive rock avalanches.
