'Shock and agony': Dangerous airlift rescue for injured explorer Bear Grylls after Antarctic fall


Daredevil SAS man-turned-explorer Bear Grylls was being airlifted to South Africa last night after being badly injured filming a TV documentary in Antarctica. 

The 34-year-old adventurer broke his shoulder in a life-threatening fall and was said to be in 'shock and agony' from a serious fracture which left the bone protruding from his body.

The accident happened at 11pm British time on Friday, and Bear's insurance company arranged for his evacuation by air ambulance for urgent medical treatment, at an estimated cost of 60,000.

Bear was injured during the making of his latest daredevil documentary, a bid to scale an unnamed mountain after travelling across the Antarctic on jet-skis, a wind-powered kite-ski and an electric-powered para-glider. The aim of the expedition was to promote alternative energy and bioethanol as a source of power, as well as raising funds for the children's charity Global Angels.

If successful, Bear and his team of four had planned to name the 9,000ft peak. But it is uncertain if the bid will now be possible, though Bear is reportedly determined to return to Antarctica.

The airlift operation itself was fraught with danger as it meant flying into hostile conditions with temperatures plummeting to -35C and a landscape of 1,000ft ice cliffs with 700 miles of high altitude plateau.

The Discovery Channel crew filming Bear's expedition as part of its Man v Wild series much of which is re-edited and shown on Channel 4's Born Survivor show travelled with him to South Africa and will now film his recovery.

The next series of Born Survivor is due to be screened on Channel 4 in the spring.
