There were two Danes named Emilie Joergensen and Andreas Rasch among the six who had a miraculous escape and survived the Agni Air plane crash in the Annapurna Mountains as reported in skynews dated 14th of May 2012.

The other survivors were a Nepali air hostess, two children and a man.

The survivors were taken to a hospital in Pokhara.

The Danes had survived because they were occupying seats in the rear of the aircraft and also because it was very much near to the exit. While Andreas was able to walk, Emilie had to be taken out on a stretcher.

The plane was on a flight from the central tourist hub of Pokhara to Muktinath, which a sacred place located at the foot of the Thorong La Himalayan mountain pass.

It had crashed near Jomsom which is known as a popular area for trekkers near the Annapurna mountain range – the reasons for the crash are under investigation.
