The climber was transferred by a helicopter and admitted to a medical facility in Tehran at 12 pm, news outlets reported. There were no air emergency stations in the country before the Health Reform Plan was launched in 2014 under the administration of President Hassan Rouhani. Since then, a total of 21 air emergency stations have been inaugurated and have helped to transport over 4,000 patients and injured people to medical centers and hospitals through 2,600 flights.
