By now, you have probably heard about the devastating Earthquake that hit Nepal. The horrifying images and videos have been played on the news, and the number of lives lost continues to increase as days go by.

Like other natural disasters, the Nepal earthquake is one that will take time, money, and the charity of others before the area and the people involved are able to come anywhere near a full recovery.

Amongst all of the tragic news, however, there is hope in some of the amazing stories, photos, and videos that have surfaced showing the heroic rescues that have taken place. Among those are the photos that show the rescue of 4-month-old Sonit Awal, who was saved 22 hours after the earthquake initially hit.

With media covering the situation and honoring the people from all over the world joining forces to help Nepal in this situation (including a rescue dog named Ripley), we are able to realize just how destructive Mother Nature can be, and how big of an impact worldwide awareness can have.

This video, too, makes the situation very real and helps to give outsiders an understanding of just how scary it can be to face something so big and powerful when these scientists and explorers fear for their lives as they run from an avalanche, created by the intense earthquake.

Luckily, Paul Devaney, and the rest of his crew atop Mount Everest, had the necessary training to keep themselves safe in the face of danger, and record this video to inform others of the situation they were faced with.
