Siachen Avalanche Survivor Lance Naik Hanamanthappa Passes Away

Lance Naik Hanamanthappa, who had been battling for life at the Army’s Research & Referral hospital, breathed his last on Today morning. “Really sorry to inform everyone that LNk Hanamanthappa is no more. He breathed his last breath at 11:45 a.m. today,” Army officials said on Today. He was 33.

His condition had worsened since yesterday night. The brave soldier had slipped into deeper coma and was on maximal life support. The shortage of oxygen to his brain and failure of kidneys made it even more difficult for the doctors to revive him.

Hanamanthappa, survived by his wife and two-year-old daughter, hailed from Koppal in Karnataka. He belonged to a farming family in Betadur village in Kundagol taluk of Dharwad district. 

The soldier of 19 Madras regiment was rescued alive on Monday night after being buried under 35 feet of snow for six days. He was flown to Delhi on Tuesday in an Air Force aircraft. The avalanche had buried their camp on February 3. “He leaves us sad & devastated. RIP Lance Naik Hanumanthappa. The soldier in you remains immortal. Proud that martyrs like you served India” tweeted by PM Narendra Modi.
