For any kind of emergency cases helicopter rescue is the best way to handle the situation.

In the beginning period of Rescue (2008 and earlier) only Nepal Army used to rescue peoples from Everest but recently private Airline Companies have also started their rescue operation in Everest with good results.
The helicopter can fly at an altitude more than the summit of Everest, but landing is the most difficult part. The rescue operation is limited to 2nd Base Camp at an altitude of 6,400m and only in Nepal’s side. China doesn’t allow flying helicopter on Everest. Sometimes rescue may take longer time because of poor visibility.
