Yesterday at 6:30 PM UTC, world-renowned Belgian explorer and master polar guide Dixie Dansercoer fell into a crevasse 250 km north of Upernavik, Greenland. A helicopter rescue team arrived quickly at the location however the crevasse depth prevented recovery of his body. Dixie's expedition partner, Seb Audy, was uninjured and safely evacuated to Upernavik. Seb made every valiant effort to assist Dixie in the hours leading to and during the rescue attempt. This is shocking news for the polar and adventure exploration community who recognised Dixie not only for his expertise but as a wonderful human and teammate. Dixie is the father of Jasper, Evelien, Thijs and Robin and is married to Julie Brown, his dedicated partner.
