According to the BBC’s report, videos have emerged showing climbers “stepping over” Mohammed Hassan, who was lying injured.
Harila made statements about the incident from her social media account yesterday due to the increasing reactions after the videos.
Harila denied the allegation that Hassan, who was reported to have fallen during the climb on July 27 and died as a result of the blows he received, was “left to die” by him and his team, and said that no one could be held responsible for Hassan’s death. Harila stated that she decided to make a statement to stop “the spread of misinformation and hatred”.
Stating that his team tried to help Hassan, but “it was very dangerous to move him due to the conditions on the mountain,” Harila noted that he and his team were “doing everything they could”.
Harila also said that she, her cameraman and two other climbers “spent almost 1.5 hours” trying to pull Hassan up.
