New Delhi: Siachen avalanche miracle survivor Hanumnathappa Koppad's condition has deteriorated as he is still in coma, the latest medical bulletin issued by Delhi's Army Research and Referral Hospital's doctors said.

"He is still on ventilator support and despite aggressive therapy and supportive care, his condition continues to remain extremely critical," the hospital's doctors said.

 

"The soldier is still suffering from pneumonia and as the disease's evidence was found in his lungs," the medical bulletin added.

The soldier is being treated by a team of intensivists, neurologist, nephrologist, endocrinologist and surgeons.

He has been given fluids and drugs to bring up his blood pressure.

 

On Tuesday, the investigations had revealed that he is suffering from liver and kidney dysfunction as well.

 

Lance Naik Hanumanthappa Koppad was one of the 10 soldiers of the 19 Madras Regiment who got trapped in the deadly avalanche on February 3 while manning the highest helipad in the world on the Saltoro Ridge of the glacier. 

 

He was found alive 'miraculously' six days after being presumed dead. He was flown to the hospital in Delhi on Monday.
